Regina Carter’s Jazz Goes Almost Everywhere
By: Tom Ashbrook

Regina Carter made her name as a jazz violinist out of Detroit. And just kept going. To the violin’s history with Paganini. To her family history, with the American songbook, then the sound of Africa, and now, to her grandfather’s music. The Alabama coal miner. The tapes of Alan Lomax. To “Miner’s Child” and “Shoe-Rye.” “See See Rider” and “I’m Going Home.” This hour On Point: violinist Regina Carter goes back with her new album “Southern Comfort.”
