Violinist Regina Carter has established herself as an enduring and creative force in jazz. A MacArthur Fellow (the “Genius” grant), Carter draws from diverse influences, including classical, Motown, swing, funk, and world music. Her latest project, “Southern Comfort” features her improvisational virtuosity and the work of multiple arrangers to music suggested by her father’s roots in Alabama.
“[Regina Carter is] a talented, charismatic player who is almost single-handedly reviving interest in the violin as a jazz instrument.” – The Los Angeles Times
