About the event
Regina Carter’s projects – including Reverse Thread, Southern Comfort, and Simply Ella – have always been very personal stories, journeys of self-discovery and identity achieved by researching and understanding family and subjects that have impacted her family. In her newest project, GONE IN A PHRASE OF AIR, Regina explores areas across America where hundreds of thousands of its citizens, most often African Americans, immigrants, and the disadvantaged, witnessed their homes, businesses, and churches being demolished, all in the name of urban renewal.
GONE IN A PHRASE OF AIR celebrates these vanished communities and some of the music associated with them. It will reach a broad range of listeners and strike a responsive chord. Listeners who have ties to similar communities will enjoy the message and the music, and others new to these stories will discover the vibrancy and spirit of these lost places.
Gone in A Phrase of Air Concert: Regina Carter, violin; Xavier Davis, Piano; Chris Lightcap, bass; Alvester Garnett, drums; Carla Cook, vocals
The GONE IN A PHRASE OF AIR concert will include original music as well as music of that time, poetry, and spoken word, and the concert experience will include visual art elements as well, followed by a post-concert discussion.
