One West Medford native has recently made history.

In January, jazz drummer Terri Lyne Carrington took home the Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, becoming the first woman to ever receive the award in this category.

This is her second Grammy win and third nomination.

Carrington was first nominated in 1989 for her debut album, “Real Life Story.” In 2012, she won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album for her fifth album, “The Mosaic Project,” a collaboration of all-female musicians and vocalists, including Dianne Reeves, Cassandra Wilson and Esperanza Spalding.

Her winning album, 2013’s “Money Jungle: Provocative in Blue,” is a reworking of Duke Ellington’s classic 1962 album “Money Jungle,” which he recorded with bassist Charlie Mingus and drummer Max Roach.
