Regina Carter - Southern Comfort
 
Violin Virtuoso Regina Carter Takes Listeners On A Musical Exploration Of Her Family History On New Album Southern Comfort
 
AVAILABLE MARCH 4, 2014 ON SONY MUSIC MASTERWORKS
 
NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Violinist Regina Carter is considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation – a designation which doesn’t quite paint the picture. As a result of her curiosity, passion, and quest for beauty brought to every stop taken on her full musical journey, she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a “genius grant”). Those are more apparent than ever on her upcoming debut Southern Comfort (Sony Music Masterworks), in which she explores the folk music of the South. The album will be released on March 4, 2014 and coincide with an international tour.
