We couldn’t be more pleased than to have Regina Carter, violinist extraordinaire, 2006 McArthur Fellow and 2018 Doris Duke Award Recipient, return to the “We Always Swing”® Jazz Series to help us celebrate our Silver Anniversary Season. Carter will be joined by pianist Xavier Davis for what promises to be an exceptional performance. Davis, a fluid and soulful pianist, appeared with Carter in January 2017, as part of the violinist’s previous project, “Simply Ella.” The accompanying release, Accentuate The Positive (Okeh), which also featured Davis on keyboards, showcased not only Carter’s versatility and ability to interpret, re-interpret and honor some of “The First Lady of Song’s” material, but the recording also offered yet another telling example of the violinist’s great skillset. “Ms. Carter is widely considered the finest jazz violinist of her generation, a hard-charging soloist whose precisely focused tone and graceful way with a ballad hint at her long years of classical training.” - The New York Times
