Jazz violin virtuoso Regina Carter’s Gone in a Phrase of Air is a journey through America’s vibrant Black neighborhoods that were demolished in the name of urban renewal. With original music, historical music, spoken word poetry and visuals, this moving performance revisits vanished communities like Black Bottom and Paradise Valley in Carter’s hometown of Detroit; Mill Creek Valley in St. Louis; the Hayti district in Durham, North Carolina; and Chicago’s Bronzeville. Feel the vibrancy and spirit of these lost places under the masterful musical direction of Regina Carter: NEA Jazz Master, MacArthur “Genius” and Artistic Director of Geri Allen Jazz Camp, NJPAC’s jazz residency for young women.
