Medford jazz drummer Terri Lyne Carrington took home top honors for best jazz vocal album at the 53d Grammy Awards Sunday night.

Carrington's album, "The Mosaic Project," is a collaboration by a dozen other female artists.

"Though it is my project, it is the personalities, the lives, and the talent of all of these women that make this project so special," Carrington said in a statement on her website. 

Carrington was joined by Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Nona Hendryx, Cassandra Wilson, Esperanza Spalding, Helen Sung, Tineke Postma, Geri Allen, Patrice Rushen, Ingrid Jensen, Sheila E., and Gretchen Parlato. Nine others collaborated, as well.
