Tim Ray

Excursions and Adventures

 It’s a delight to hear three supremely talented musicians find common ground, especially considering it’s their first recording together. As many know, Tim Ray (piano), John Patitucci (bass), and Terri Lyne Carrington (drums) have diverse backgrounds, styles, and experience, but share a common connection to Berklee College. Ray, currently Tony Bennett’s musical director, is a longtime road companion to Lyle Lovett and Jane Siberry. Patitucci initially made a name for himself with the great Chick Corea and has spent the better part of the last two decades with Wayne Shorter. Carrington, also with Shorter and a myriad of other great jazz artists, is at the vanguard of today’s drum corps, with power, finesse, and a vision for the instrument that few can match.
