Her last two albums were Grammy winners. Will it be a hat trick for drummer-composer-bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington?

Two years on from the Money Jungle-themed Provocative in Blue the new Mosaic Project: Love and Soul is a vocals-heavy affair to be released in August. Plenty of stars take part. Singers Oleta Adams, Natalie Cole, Paula Cole, Lalah Hathaway, Chaka Khan, Ledisi, Chanté Moore, Valerie Simpson, Nancy Wilson, featured on ‘Imagine This’ above, Jaguar Wright and Lizz Wright are on the Concord album with among the instrumentalists saxophonist Tia Fuller, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, bassists Meshell Ndegoecello and Linda Oh, and keyboardists Geri Allen, Patrice Rushen and Rachel Z. Billy Dee Williams contributes spoken-word interludes. Also look out for a spot from new flautist star-in-the-making Elena Pinderhughes in one of the young player’s highest profile record appearances to date. Carrington also plays guitar, bass and keyboards on several tunes and the album includes a new version of ‘Come Sunday’ as well as Sinatra-associated ballad, ‘I’m a Fool to Want You’ sung by Chaka Khan plus Luther Vandross’ 1980s ballad ‘For You to Love’ featuring Oleta Adams. UK release date for the new album is 14 August.
