Regina Carter

Regina Carter quintet at Stanford last night, with Jeff Sanford (clarinet/flute), Fred Harris (piano), Seward McCain (bass) and Akira Tana (drums). Intriguing reinterpretations of classics and classic forms, full of unexpected twists and turns. A quintet that at times sounded like a full orchestra, but also full of intense, mind-bending individual touches. Besides Carter, Harris and Sanford had excellent solo contributions.
