Drummer, bandleader and educator Terri Lyne Carrington is set to release an ambitious double album, Waiting Game, which was recorded with her ensemble Social Science.

Set for a Nov. 8 release on Motéma Music, Waiting Game features vocal contributions by actor Malcolm-Jamal Warner and hip-hop artist Rapsody, as well as audio samples of Assata Shakur and Mumia Abu Jamal, plus a four-song suite of improvised instrumentals. Also contributing to the album are guitarist Matthew Stevens, keyboardist Aaron Parks and bassist Derrick Hodge.

“In previous projects I’ve hinted at my concerns for the society and the community that I live in,” Carrington said in a press release announcing the politically charged recording. “But everything has been pointing in this direction. At some point you have to figure out your purpose in life. There are a lot of drummers deemed ‘great.’ For me, that’s not as important as the legacy you leave behind.”
