Regina Carter On WCLK's - Jazz In The New Millennium

Bookmark and Share

Violinist 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, the Detroit's native was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a "genius grant"). 

Rick Mitchell's Jazz In The New Millennium features Carter tomorrow, Sunday at 3pm on WLCK: Atlanta. She began playing jazz music as a student at the Boston Conservatory of Music, and her inimitable style has been in the spotlight since her 1987 debut with the all female jazz quintet Straight Ahead.
