Regina Carter talks with WBGO Radio about Southern Comfort and her upcoming NYC - Jazz Standard shows

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, she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a "genius grant"). Those are more apparent than ever on her debut Southern Comfort (Sony Music Masterworks), in which she explores her musical and cultural heritage and the folk music of the South.  

Carter talks with WBGO - Newark NJ's Gary Walker about the album and her upcoming Jazz Standard shows which start tomorrow July 31 and go through August 2.
