Overview

Regina Carter has achieved another landmark in a creative history that has yielded both artistic and commercial triumphs. Reverse Thread starts with exquisite traditional African music and infuses it with contemporary jazz and Afropop energy. The results are uplifting, stirring, and joyful.

Regina's Reverse Thread Band adds virtuoso Yacouba Sissoko on kora -- the West African harp traditionally played by village storytellers -- to her longstanding rhythm section. Sissoko's beautiful instrumental voicings were brought into the mix to help recreate the spirit of passing stories from generation to generation. The collaboration -- unlike anything previously heard -- is a haunting and beautiful compliment to Regina's sumptuously seductive violin.

With Reverse Thread, Regina takes another giant step forward. In an era of cookie cutter jazz albums that do little to excite the imagination of music lovers, it's a brilliant, colorful, and lively exploration whose seductive charms are infallible. From the Label
