New issue of KCMetropolis.org today, and I have a one new review:
I was lucky to squeeze in this one review last weekend, seeing as how things are really ramping up at work/school and for my own concerts! My review this week of Regina Carter at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts will likely be my last for the next month or so.
Virtuoso jazz violinist Regina Carter is currently on tour for her latest CD Southern Comfort, released this month. Southern Comfort is inspired by field songs, Americana folk tunes, and Louisiana jazz styles. I have long admired Carter and her playing—she’s incredible! I love seeing an artist who is equally comfortable and skilled in multiple genres. I jumped at the chance to hear her live in Kansas City. Carter brought four musicians with her to Helzberg Hall in the Kauffman Center—drums, bass, guitar, and accordion. The concert was incredible, pristine, refined… perhaps just a bit too refined but still, a wonderful experience of powerful, moving music.
