Release Date:07/21/2017;Notes:A hundred years after her birth, there are still plenty of lessons to be learned from listening to Ella Fitzgerald. But that's not the only takeaway that Regina Carter has gleaned from Ella's storied career. On her new album, Ella: Accentuate the Positive, the virtuoso violinist reveals the many aspects of Fitzgerald that have influenced her own remarkable path in music. That translates to an album that avoids the more obvious song choices in favor of more obscure though no less rewarding tunes from deep inside Ella's bountiful catalogue. Instead of trying to echo Fitzgerald's own choices and arrangements, or attempting the near-impossible task of evoking her beloved voice on the violin, Carter has done what has always set her apart - followed her own dauntless instincts, resulting in a singular new take on both familiar and hidden classics. Carter's enchantment with Ella Fitzgerald continued from childhood into adulthood and she grew to realize how much technique and virtuosity were involved in producing a sound so warm and inviting. The ability to spark that connection was central to Carter's choice of songs for Ella: Accentuate the Positive. From the gospel-tinged performance on the opening "Ac-cen-tchu-ate the Positive" to the airily funky arrangement of "Crying in the Chapel" and the bluesy take on "I'll Never Be Free" that sets the tone for the slinky groove of "All My Live.";Track List:1.
