REGINA CARTER'S SOUTHERN COMFORT
with: Scott Amendola-drums, Marvin Sewall-guitar, Chris Lightcap-bass, Will Holshouser-accordian
Violinist Regina Carter is considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation — a designation which doesn’t quite paint the picture. For Regina, the violin isn’t merely an improvisational vehicle. It’s a passport to unexpected realms, a Rosetta stone that unlocks the door to a myriad of cultures and worlds.
As a result of her curiosity, passion, and quest for beauty brought to every stop taken on her full musical journey, Regina was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a “genius grant”). Those qualities are more apparent than ever on her critically acclaimed release, Southern Comfort (Sony Music Masterworks), on which she explores the folk music of the South.
Southern Comfort thematically connects Carter’s earlier albums I’ll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey, which features her mother’s favorite early jazz standards; and Reverse Thread, which celebrates the tradition of African music re-imagined for violin, accordion, bass, drums and kora. On her new album she explores the folk tunes her paternal grandfather, a coalminer, would have heard as he toiled in Alabama – and the project expanded to include other folk tunes of the region.
Regina Carter creates music that is wonderfully listenable, probingly intelligent and, at times, breathtakingly daring…taking the listener into the future of jazz.
