The Attitude of Doing is Dorfman’s first collaboration with jazz violinist extraordinaire and MacArthur Fellow, Regina Carter. Both moved in their respective arts by a humanist vision, through recorded and commissioned music, they invite the audience in to experience life’s messages. With Carter’s exquisite sound and range, the music ranges from her Mwanatalitambula, a Ugandan Jewish Folk tune and her Trampin’; to Ella Fitzgerald’s Never Be Free and Accentuate the Positive. This full company ensemble is a joyously moving dance of nurture, growth, relationship and, ultimately, the power of community. The Attitude of Doing premiered at NJPAC in the TD Moody Jazz Festival on November 16, 2022, with live performance by Regina in concert with her recorded compositions.
