Jazz Standard, New York, NY
Few musicians of her generation can match Regina Carter’s résumé for sheer eclecticism. In a career now past the quarter–century mark, this gifted violinist, composer and bandleader has performed and/or recorded with Faith Evans and Mary J. Blige, with Max Roach and Kenny Barron, and on the soundtrack of Ken Burns’ acclaimed PBS series The Civil War. In September 2006, Carter was awarded a MacArthur Foundation “genius grant”; with this support, she undertook an extended journey to Africa and in 2010 recorded Reverse Thread (E1 Music), an album of folk songs culled from the African continent and its New World diaspora. This week on our stage Regina Carter reconvenes the Reverse Thread band to play songs from that acclaimed album as well as new material and perhaps even a jazz standard or two!
