…Carter is a knockout violinist who leads a knockout band. –O Magazine Emotion and fire from the stage overtook the crowd, which roared from the opening number through a sizzling salsa-club conclusion. –Houston Chronicle Stellar! –Rolling Stone FirstWorks presents violin virtuoso Regina Carter, considered to be the foremost jazz violinist of her generation. Carter and her superb band take the audience on a musical odyssey featuring wonderfully listenable jazz and highlights from her latest project, Southern Comfort – exploring her grandfather’s roots in Alabama. Celebrating the joyous music that infused her childhood, Southern Comfort blends folk songs and spirituals, Cajun fiddle music, early gospel and coal miners work songs in an unforgettable evening of music. For Regina Carter, the violin isn’t merely an improvisational vehicle—it’s a Rosetta stone that unlocks the door to myriad cultures and worlds.
