Regina Carter and Carla Cook: I'll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey
Friday, January 25, 2008
With dare-devil virtuosity and unfettered swing, violinist Regina Carter takes audiences on an exhilarating romp through classic songs from the '20s, '30s, and '40s with her quartet and guest vocalist Carla Cook.
Time Magazine raves that Regina Carter is "breathtakingly daring, taking the listener into the future of jazz." And the Los Angeles Times says she's "almost single-handedly reviving interest in the violin as a jazz instrument." With dare-devilish virtuosity and unfettered swing, the 2006 MacArthur Fellow and Kennedy Center favorite takes an exhilarating romp through classic songs of the '20s, '30s, and '40s as featured on her latest Verve recording, I'll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey. She's joined by Grammy-nominated vocalist Carla Cook, who JazzTimes calls "a mad-loose, straight-ahead jazz diva with a gospel soul and big band heart."
