Product Description

Amazon.com

Blessed with a vibrant violin style that embraces everyone from Stuff Smith and Ray Nance to Jean-Luc Ponty, Regina Carter gives a swinging shout-out to her hometown, Detroit, on Motor City Moments. Trumpeter Marcus Belgrave and saxophonist-bass clarinetist James Carter lend their beautiful tones to Thad Jones's boppish "Don't Git Sassy," and the haunting "Love Theme from Spartacus." Marvin Gaye's "Don't Mess with Mister T," Milt Jackson's "For Someone I Love," and Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" move with a Latin beat. Another Motown great, pianist Barry Harris, lends his Thelonious Monk-Bud Powell lines on his duo with Carter on "Fukai Aijo" and on Lucky Thompson's Charlie Parker -inspired "Prey Loot." Guitarist Russell Malone sits in with Carter on "Chattanooga Choo Choo," and the bluesy "Up South" pays tribute to the Southern heritage of Detroit's black population, which gave the world some beautiful music. --Eugene Holley Jr.

"Motor City Moments" is Regina Carter's 4th CD and it is amazing to listen to. It opens with an uptempo, improvisational-like, number, "Don't Git Sassy" then settles into a contemplative, salsa tune "For Somoeone I Love," where Carter plucks her violin then make it laugh, weep and glide all in one song. I haven't heard the Milt Jackson version, but it would be interesting to hear the original to see how this interpretation is different. There also some interesting selections like "The Love Theme from Spartacus." Carter's lamenteous violin is softly accompanied by Marcus Belgrave's flugelhorn. In some instances, the two instruments merge into one sound. But the ultimate gem in this CD is Carter's version of Chattanooga Choo Choo. It should be a standard violin piece much like Mozart's Sonatas. It sounds like it was written for the violin and Carter is in absolute command here, with such fire and fluidity, I'm definetly impress! One should buy this CD just for this number alone.

I'm reviewing all three Albums together as they are by the same artist; Regina Carter. Again I purchased these Albums on the basis of a 30 sec listen. They all lived up to my expectations. If anyone is familiar with Stephane Grapelli, Regina Carter's style is very similar. She really swings. I love these albums and play them over and over again.

If you're fond of lovely young women who play authentic traditional jazz violin wonderfully , you may well have stumbled on your cup-o-tea with this outing . Folks like James Carter (bass clarinet and tenor saxaphone) songs # 1 and 6 , Marcus Belgrave (trumpet or flugelhorn) Songs # 1 and 6 and Russell Malone (guitar) songs # 9 and 10 join a couple of crack rhythm rosters difficult to fault . Perhaps you are familiar with pianist Barry Harris ? That would be good (all good) as his joyful accompaniment can be heard on songs # 7 and 8 . Elsewhere , Ms. Carter's regular (and wonderful) pianist Werner "Vana" Gierig can be found and heard to great delight on songs # 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 and 9 . Other players include Darryl Hall (bass) on all songs save 8 and 10 . Alvester Garnett (drums) songs # 1 , 3 , 4 , 5 and 6 . You'll be pleased to know that drummer Lewis Nash songs # 2 and 7 is on hand . Last but hardly least , we're graced with the percussion of Mayra Casales songs # 2 , 3 and 5 . I became aware of Ms. Carter's gift for song on a somewhat earlier date . This one is better still . Swing and all manner of rhythms . Joyful , delightful , introspective and extroverted . And true . Grand .

A good blend of Jazz and other, not to much to overtake the beautiful violin. I love the Chattanooga Choo Choo and Up South. Fukai Aijo is a pretty song! i like this CD.

Regina Carter is an incredible Jazz violinist and here she shows her breadth with elements of improvisational, swing, bop, and French styles woven into her own unique voice.
