Description
The foremost jazz violinist of her generation (and a MacArthur Fellow), Regina Carter has made an album of her motherís favorite jazz standards (2006's I'll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey) and one built on traditional African music (2010's Reverse Thread). On Southern Comfort she interprets her own roots through a modern lens by exploring the type of music her grandfather, an Alabama coalminer, would have listened to. The songs range from the aching beauty of "I'm Going Home" to the jauntiness of "Blues de Basile" and Hank Williams's "Honky Tonkin'" to the beguiling melodies of "Miner's Child" and "Shoo-Rye." Other tunes include Gram Parsons's "Hickory Wind," the blues classic "See See Rider," and the lullaby "Cornbread Crumbled in Gravy." "I really wanted, with all of these pieces, to keep the rawness" Carter told NPR's Melissa Block, "and not to over-decorate them, if you will, to let that beauty come through. And sometimes that's more difficult than it would seem." Carter is nothing if not adaptable: in 2002 the city of Genoa invited her to be the first non-classical musician to play the legendary "Cannon" Guarneri, once owned by Niccolo Paganini. She wowed the crown with renditions of "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "The Music Goes 'Round and 'Round," and a version of "Don't Explain" that segued into a Bach chaconne.
