Regina Carter Trio's live performance in the KPLU studios

Jun 8, 2011

We were pleased to welcome jazz violin virtuoso, Regina Carter to the KPLU studios on June 1 for a unique performance and interview with Evening Jazz host, Abe Beeson.

Accompanying Carter were Will Holshouser on accordion, and Yacouba Sissoko on the kora, a beautiful and unique African harp. The trio performed two selections from Carter’s latest CD, Reverse Thread: Kanou and N’teri (video below) which explore African music in very fresh, surprising and delightful ways.

Regina Carter’s performance was the second half of a Studio Session doubleheader that afternoon. New Orleans pianist, vocalist, producer and songwriting legend (and Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame inductee), Allen Toussaint kicked off the show.

Video, audio and photos from his performance will be available right here on KPLU.org Friday morning!
