No one puts so much feeling into her music as Cassandra Wilson. She is one of the most original jazz singers in the current jazz scene. While most singers systematically go through the entire book of standards, what often leads to shipshape-arranged glamour jazz, Wilson always looks beyond. Especially in the eighties, in the New York M-Base Collective of saxophonist Steve Coleman, she developed insight in music. In the years to follow, she found her musical identity, during the production of almost twelve albums she made. In mostly acoustic work - also with standards for that matter – she developed her own, recognizable style in which she seems to put her whole soul. It’s beautiful music, with colourful shifts in nuance, and of the southern romantic sort that at the same time can be as cold as ice. Wilson has just returned from a tour with singer Al Jarreau and saxophonist Boney James and currently works on a new album.
