Jazz compositions written by women

Produced by Terri Lyne Carrington and Matthew Stevens

For the 2018 opening celebration of the Berklee Institute for Jazz and Gender Justice, Terri Lyne Carrington asked her students to select and perform songs from the famed jazz Real Book — a compilation of lead sheets or scores of jazz standards — written by women composers. When she realized there was only one in the entire book, Carrington, a Grammy Award winning virtuoso jazz drummer, composer, inter-disciplinary artist, activist and educator, who has worked tirelessly over the last decade to advocate for inclusivity and raise the voice of women, trans and non-binary people in jazz, set out to shift the narrative.

Throughout the next several years, Carrington assembled New Standards (Hal Leonard Sept 2022) a book of the 101 jazz compositions written by women. New Standards Vol. 1 captures 11 of these compositions. Produced by Terri Lyne Carrington and Matthew Stevens, this album is only “Vol. 1.” Carrington’s goal is to record all 101 pieces from the new songbook that she’s created.
