Product Description

Amazon.com

Violinist Regina Carter's able to cover ample stylistic terrain without any sense of a tourist's itinerary. Her signature excursions on Rhythms of the Heart reveal a jaunty joie de vivre reminiscent of Stephane Grappelli, best showcased on "Lady Be Good" and Tadd Dameron's "Our Delight." But there are also credible forays into salsa with "Mojito," Afro-pop with "Mandingo Street" (featuring Cameroonian multi-instrumentalist and composer Richard Bona), and soulful reggae on a cover of the Temptations' "Papa Was a Rolling Stone," where vocalist Cassandra Wilson provides her trademark hushed refinement. A longtime sidewoman for trombonist Steve Turre and others, Carter proves adept at fostering ideal forums for her cohorts, particularly pianist Kenny Barron, whose tune "Cook's Bay" is a pastoral gem, and whose exchanges with Carter on "N.Y. Attitude" ensure that's there's a graceful depth to the song's brisk efficiency. Finally, don't overlook the pensive beauty of Carter's take on the ballad "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most." --Britt Robson

In live performance, Regina Carter is one of the great musicians of our time, and one of the greatest jazz soloists of all time on any instrument. That monumental impact is not really captured fully on this disc, but it is fairly common in jazz that it would not be. This is an excellent disc, which reveals her beauty of tone, swinging approach, and compelling ideas. This is one of the best jazz violin albums of all time, and I look forward to listening to her for years to come. REGINA RULES!!!!

"Rhytthms of the Heart" is decidedly jazzier than Carter's first and second CD's. This is more evident towards the end with "New York Attitude," "By the Brook" and "Skeeter Blues." There are also some pleasant surprises as in "Mojito," a very latin, carribean inspired number. The mixture of percussion by Richard Bona and Carter's violin lends a breezy, delightful salsa tune, that invites you to relax and dance a little.

This CD also marks the appearnce of Kenny Baron, what an awesome treat! His piano really kicks it up a notch. And for all of you Cassandra Wilson fans out there, she makes a brooding appearance on track #3 "Papa was a rolling stone." I didn't care too much for "Mandingo Street." It seemed a tad too experimental and belonged in another CD, but fall in love with track #6, "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most." It 's a quite, romantic piece with Baron's translucent piano and Carter's weepy violin. It inspires complete amore, even if you're devoid of any amorous proclivities. Trust me.

I do have to give this a 4 star rating only because it isn't as brillaint as the previous two but nevertheless, it's worth owning.

Regina Carter has established herself as a solid performer and leader. She has borrowed the tried and true formula used by the likes of Cal Tjader, Art Blakey, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington, to name but a scant few; that is to surround herself with truly talented musicians that know how to blend harmoniously. The music on this CD is a continuation of her repertoire on previous CD's, great song selections and varied formats of interpretations. She captivates the interest of jazz and latin aficionados.

This C.D. has a wonderful mixture of jazz rhythms and creations. Regina Carter is extremely talented and has developed into a confident jazz violinist. She is also accompanied by extremely talented musicians inall the selections. I hadn't heard it before I bought it, but I'm very happy with this C.D.
