"Carter has a lush tone, comprehensive technique and an unerring melodic sense" - Financial Times
Detroit-born violinist Regina Carter combines dazzling technical proficiency and profound compositional and improvisational gifts with a fresh, aggressive approach to her instrument. In Carter's hands, the violin reveals both its melodic side and its potential for percussive expression. The first jazz violinist to be invited to record using Paganini's famed instrument, Carter demonstrates an exceptional ability to explore musical combinations and contexts both familiar and unexpected. Carter's recorded repertoire, though centered on the jazz mainstream, expresses her wide-ranging professional experience and eclectic personal tastes, roving from Motown through classical to the avant garde. Carter returns to the Stanford Jazz Festival to perform selections from her latest recording of music from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s.
Supported in part by Robert and Sharon Yoerg, Western Jazz Presenters Network, and National Endowment for the Arts.
