Real Life Story (Fo'real)

One of the most musical efforts I’ve heard from a drummer in a long time. A must buy! I’ve always enjoyed TLC’s playing and she swings hard with the best. From the sultriness of “SHH” to the funkiness of “Hobo’s Flat” Carrington’s Real Life Story showcases a skillful artist at the top of her game. -Herman Matthews

must have

This album is incredible. I can't say enough about it. Wayne Shorter, Grover Washington, and Terri's vocals make this album a one of a kind.

Coming Out Party

This was her coming out album. After gaining recognition on the Arsenial Hall Show (she was his sidekick / musical director), she released this album. I saw her on tour at Blues Alley. (3 shows) Personally met her and the touring band. I had a wonderful talk with all of the musicians, especially Ms. Carrington, Mr. Sharpe (bass) and Mr. Escovedo (perc). This album show the breath and width of her talent and playing ability. She is a very, very good drummer and musician. Well worth buying and is great to listening to.
