Regina Carter - Ella: Accentuate the Positive featured on Punto Radio's 'Anima jazz'

Bookmark and Share

A hundred years after her birth, the ever-eloquent Ella Fitzgerald continues to teach us lessons.  Regina Carter has chosen this moment to celebrate the First Lady of Song's infectious and inclusive artistry with unabashed joy.  "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." On Ella:  Accentuate the Positive, from Okeh/Sony Music Masterworks, the virtuoso violinist reveals the many faces of Fitzgerald that have influenced Carter's own remarkable path in music. Apart from the title track of Accentuate the Positive, Regina resists the allure of the songstress's most recognizable hits. Carter has mined tunes from deep within Ella's bountiful catalogue, and brought them to the surface with a distinct freshness.  The reward is rich for the listener.

Ella:  Accentuate the Positive is featured on episode No. 770 "ANIMAJAZZ", from Punto Radio - Pisa Italy. The show is designed and conducted by BRUNO POLLACCI and is set for air on Thursday, July 13 at 19.30.
