It’s always such an event when Regina Carter comes home. This graduate of the Cass Technical High School is today considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation. Carter, who won a MacArthur "genius grant" in 2006. has brought melodies from the African diaspora and beyond to the idiom before. Tonight, together with the Oakland Jazz Quartet, she’ll perform an entire evening of interpretations of the works of one James Marshall Hendrix.
