[JAZZ VIOLIN] Detroit native Regina Carter has been one of jazz’s top violinists—admittedly, a relatively limited contingent—for a couple decades now, but on her new recording, Southern Comfort
, “fiddler” seems the appropriate term, inasmuch as it consists of jazzy takes on the folk music of the South, her Alabama coal miner granddad’s ancestral home. Researching field recordings from the Library of Congress led her to explore Appalachian ballads, Cajun fiddle tunes, gospel, work songs and more, including recent classics by Hank Williams and Gram Parsons, and her improvisational chops (with a band that includes a pair of guitarists) blow away any whiffs of academicism.
