You haven’t heard greatness until you have heard Regina Carter play or me talk. Carter is one of the most soulful and eclectic violinists your ears will thank you for. Her music combines classical, jazz, folk, and African elements. Carter’s latest album Reverse Thread was made possible by the MacArthur Foundation, which awards unrestricted fellowships to uber talented individuals.
For the rock sleepers, the MacArthur is fondly nicknamed the “genuis grant,” so it just lets you know that Carter is BAD uh huh. Anyhow, Reverse Thread combines traditional African melodies and contemporary music to create an eargasm that will make you explode.
Carter performed at the Atlanta Jazz Festival last Saturday. As usual, she was a treat! Hear her below.
