Regina Carter TONIGHT thru Saturday at Birdland!

April 2, 2014

rcarterViolinist Regina Carter is considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation – a designation which doesn’t quite paint the picture. As a result of her curiosity, passion, and quest for beauty brought to every stop taken on her full musical journey, she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a “genius grant”). Those are more apparent than ever on her upcoming debut Southern Comfort (Sony Music Masterworks), in which she explores the folk music of the South. The album was released on March 4, 2014 and kicks off an international tour.

On this spirited new disc, Ms. Carter, takes a close look at American roots music, with a clear emphasis on the African-American experience. She draws from the album in this engagement, featuring a spry backing band.

See you at the show!
