Verve, 2003, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Regina takes a stab at romance on Pagnini: After a Dream. It’s a very good set filled with classic, cinematic ballads, some of which feature a full string orchestra. The lead melodies all come from the precision of Carter’s violin. Top selections include “Black Orpheus”, “Oblivion” and “Rverie”. She stretches in yet another dimension and shows appropriate grace and poise to the delight of listeners.
