iTunes Review

Violinist Regina Carter is primarily known for her work in jazz, but she’s an extremely versatile player who looks for historical connections outside the genre from time to time, including the recent African-themed Reverse Thread. For Southern Comfort, she turns to folk songs heard by her coal-miner grandfather in Alabama, as well as tunes she found while digging through the Library of Congress’ Lomax Family and John Work III collections. That said, this album isn’t an attempt at traditional authenticity—the musicians and arrangers here are progressive New York–based guys. Thus, “Trampin’” skitters along on Afrobeat rhythms, and “Shoo-Rye” falls more in the Appalachian tradition propelled by new flourishes of drums and accordion. Gram Parsons' “Hickory Wind” is treated as a straight-up country instrumental, complete with pedal steel and accordion, while things turn to the Cajun tradition for “Blues de Basile.” Other highlights include the gospel-blues-rock “I Moaned and I Moaned” and the poignant “I’m Going Home.”

Touch the Past

I bought the album after hearing the interview of the artist on NPR. Thanks for the comforting connection to our past.


I became so overwhelmed with emotion when i heard this magnificent work of art The research that went into this CD is evident. I could see my great grandmother who I never met, but seen pictures of her on the porch in North Carolina.

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...
