Terri Lyne Carrington Releases Ashford & Simpson’s Somebody Told A Lie For Women’s History Month

Terri Lyne Carrington releases her cover of Ashford and Simpson’s “Somebody Told A Lie” from her Mosaic Project: Love And Soul album for Women’s History Month. Carrington created her own arrangement of the song from Ashford and Simpson’s Come As You Are album and was able to collaborate with Valerie Simpson on her version.  Simpson sang on the song and gave her approval: “She gave it another treatment and that’s what a songwriter wants—you want a new treatment, it already exist in its old form, so why do that again.  She took it to a whole new place, I love it.”
