Terri Lyne Carrington is a rarity in jazz — she’s a female drummer. She’s also one of the best drummers in the world, and last night, she took home the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album for her Duke Ellington tribute, “Money Jungle: Provocative in Blue.”

Meghna Chakrabarti profiled Carrington back in 2012 as part of WBUR’s Visionaries series. She spoke to her about her rise to prominence in the jazz world, and about her resistance to the “female drummer” label.
