  • Description
"Regina Carter creates music that is wonderfully listenable, probingly intelligent and, at times, breathtakingly daring" writes Time. A major voice in the rarified world of jazz violin, Carter combines dazzling technical proficiency with a fresh, aggressive approach to her instrument, and a multicultural perspective. In Carter’s hands, the violin reveals both its melodic side and its potential for percussive expression. Carter is unique in a world that is not accustomed to female jazz instrumentalists, African-American string musicians, or violins as jazz instruments. Despite the challenges, her career has been a veritable crescendo of successes that shows no sign of letting up. Notably, Carter is the first jazz artist and the first African-American to be chosen to play Paganini’s famed Guarneri "Cannon" violin in the city of Genoa.
