iTunes Review

"Violinist Regina Carter looked back to American Standards and other classic material on 2006’s I’ll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey. For her follow-up, 2010’s Reverse Thread, Carter turns her attention to African sources, both traditional and modern, while also incorporating elements from other cultures, creating hard-to-classify music that spotlights violin and accordion. A variety of musicians make contributions here, with drummer Alvester Garnett contributing to 11 of the 12 tracks. On the opener, “Hiwumbe Awumba"" (based on a traditional song of the Ugandan Jews), Carter and guitarist Adam Rogers spin out solos, accordionist Will Holshouser riffs and comps, and Garnett and bassist Chris Lightcap drive the rhythm. “Full Time,” written and arranged by guest Senegalese bassist Mamadou Ba, has room for Yacouba Sissoko’s kora stylings, touches of reggae, and soaring violin. On the Papa Vasquez-penned “Un Aguinaldo Pa Regina” the band nods toward Puerto Rico, and Gary Versace’s accordion and Carter’s violin also bring Argentinean tango to mind. "

Best Jazz album of 2010 (so far)

What an amazing record!
I can hear just why the itunes official review calls it startling and says it "embodies the spirit of jazz." Regina Carter is on tour with this show now, and it knocked me out when i saw this music performed in concert, and also on NPR Tiny Desk Concert.

Violinist Regina Carter is a highly original soloist whose sophisticated technique and rich, lush tone took the jazz world by pleasant surprise when she arrived in New York from her native Detroit. And jazz fans weren't the only people who heard that mercurial quality in her playing: artists as diverse as Faith Evans, Elliot Sharp, and Mary J. Blige have employed her talents on their recordings, as has filmmaker Ken Burns on his soundtrack for The Civil War. Add this to an extremely long list of...
