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 upcoming debut Southern Comfort (Sony Music Masterworks), in which she explores the folk music of the South.  The album coincides with an international tour, and serviced to both Non-Comm Triple A and Jazz, RC's Southern Comfort has broken CMJ-Jazz Top 10 coming in this week at #7.
