“I had a great time being ‘roasted’ by Larry Simpson at the Society for American Music honoree reception and dinner,” says Carrington. “It was a pleasure and an honor to be there with old and new friends, as well as family.”  Carrington’s unparalleled contributions to American music conferred a life-long membership into the Society. She joins a distinguished group of luminaries including Pharoah Sanders, Loretta Lynn, Oscar Peterson, Max Roach, Gunther Schuller, John Cage, and numerous others.
