Grammy-winning drummer and producer Terri Lyne Carrington and her new group Social Science take aim at all manner of injustices on their debut album, Waiting Game. Ahead of the band’s EFG London Jazz Festival residency, Thomas Rees spoke to Carrington, keys-player Aaron Parks and guitarist Matthew Stevens about the album’s message of humanity and her vision for a jazz world free from patriarchy
