Episode Summary

EDIT
Only a handful of violin players have made a name for themselves in jazz music and Regina Carter is a pioneer in her own right. The Detroit native has made a name for herself unlike her contemporaries including the late Snuff Smith and Stéphane Grappelli to Jean-Luc Ponty. Carter’s unique blend of her musical upbringing which is as diverse as the Motown sound to the classical training and standards of Tin Pan Alley her mother raised her on. Over the years I’ve been a big fan and have lots of respect for violinist Regina Carter. I’ve seen her evolve from when she used to play locally in groups around Detroit to her becoming a critically acclaimed musician and educator. She’s recorded a wide range of jazz recordings including “Motor City Magic” her tribute to the music she grew up listening to in Detroit and “Freefall” featuring NEA Jazz Master and pianist Kenny Barron. Carter, a 2006 MacArthur Fellowship winner, recorded “Reverse Thread,” a world record that explores music from Africa. She just completed a weekend of live performances this year’s 2011 Detroit Jazz Festival and a week at the famed Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City. Regina is about embark on a two month tour abroad. While I was in Detroit, I took some time out of Regina’s busy schedule to talk about her musical journey and her latest project “Reverse Thread,” an exploration of music from the African Diaspora. She explains “I’ve been wanting to record a project like this for years but never had the support from her former record label.” She adds “E-1 Music was so gracious to allow me to release this project, which is an exploration of music from the Africa and other parts of the world.” It was her recording “I'll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey” which featured songs from Tin Pan Alley and the great American songbook that earned her the MacArthur Fellowship in 2006.moreless
