Detroit's own Regina Carter celebrates Ella Fitzgerald's centennial, (April 25, 1917-June 15, 1996) with her new album "Accentuate the Positive" (Okeh/Sony Masterworks) and with her 2017 Detroit Jazz Festival performance, "Simply Ella",  this coming Labor Day weekend.  Internationally acclaimed Jazz violinist Regina Carter has chosen to pay tribute to the First Lady of Song's virtuosic artistry with love and appreciation. "Accentuate the Positive, I thought, was the perfect title considering the mood of the country and the world right now," Ms. Carter says. "We need some positive vibes."
