Album Review

Dedicated to her mother, who passed away in 2005, I'll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey finds jazz violinist Regina Carter showcasing the American popular songs her mother loved. Centered around Carter's supple violin chops, the album also features pianist and fellow Detroiter Xavier Davis, bassist Matthew Parrish, and drummer Alvester Garnett. This is a gorgeously arranged and swinging affair that not only includes such straight-ahead numbers as "There's a Small Hotel" and "A-Tisket, a-Tasket," but also finds Carter delving headlong into '30s swing and some of the classical influences of her last album, Paganini: After a Dream. To these ends, Edvard Grieg's "Anitra's Dance" is a superbly executed bit of angular post-bop that brings to mind Wynton Marsalis' Black Codes (From the Underground) with its orchestral mix of counterpuntal rhythms and swing. Similarly engaging is the propulsive gypsy jazz standard "Bei Mir Bist Du Schön," which perfectly suits the guest vocals of Dee Dee Bridgewater. Other tracks, like the softly melodic "Sentimental Journey" and the slowed-down "St. Louis Blues," defy simple conventions without ever straying from jazz tradition. Ultimately, Carter has crafted a deeply intimate, soulful, and lovingly burnished tribute to her mother.

YOU GO GIRL!

I have been a fan of Regina Carter for the last 51/2 years. This is the third CD that I own. Let me say, the CD is a fitting tribute, from the first to the last track. My favorites are, Bel Mir Bist Du Schoen, Anitra's Dance, and Georgia on my mind. The sound of her violin just inudates me. I really don't know what to say. Her execution and ease at playing the violin leaves nothing to chance. Buy the whole CD Now!

A lovely tribute to the music of her mother's generation. Beautifully played jazz violin. After just seeing the artist perform live, this cd is a wonderful addition to any jazz lovers collection.

I'll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey

Regina plays the meanest jazz violin, hands down. With this album, she coninues with her energetic playing that makes me want to dance. The choice of songs is a great journey through her mother's generation of tunes. A must-have!
