The last time that sublime jazz violinist Regina Carter blew into town she uncorked a wonderful set at the Freihofer’s Jazz Festival at SPAC back in 2002.
This time around was a whole different animal. And it was even better. It was, in fact, one of the most musically thrilling shows of the year.
Carter is a genuine virtuoso, and since being awarded a MacArthur Foundation fellowship in 2006, you can also call her a genius. I certainly won’t argue that point.
