The type of violin playing I really do not like. A tone like a dying cat and a contrived, forced swing.

I have a couple of albums with Regina Carter on, and I find them a bit hard to listen to, not because of her playing but because of her intonation.

I was not sure when she kept sliding into every note if was for a blues effect or if she was finding the note, anyway it got annoying.

SLiding

Post by Chip Gulbro »

The act of sliding or scooping to a note is definitely an acquired taste. I would imagine that one of her influences is Stuff Smith-the true sultan of fiddle swing. He slides all over the place and I love it . There are a few great clips of him on you tube.
