Regina Carter

Leave it to the extraordinary violinist Regina Carter to find a way to interpret African folk songs in an utterly unique, contemporary manner. Her year-old collection Reverse Thread makes excellent use of not only her violin, but also a West African harp called a kora and the accordion. The album was basically made possible by Carter landing a MacArthur Fellowship—aka the “genius grant”—which allowed her to research the African music she wanted to use, and its background, before recording Reverse Thread. The resulting collection shows that genius money was well spent. This is the final show of this year’s Jazz at the Sheraton concert series. Sheraton City Center, 150 W. 500 South, 7:30 p.m., $30
