One of the most distinctive voices in modern jazz, Cassandra Wilson made her artistic breakthrough with her visionary 1993 Blue Note debut Blue Light 'Til Dawn. Wilson wove an alluring tapestry of jazz, blues, folk and R&B into a singular sound that opened up new avenues of expression for vocal jazz, paving a path that future vocalists from Norah Jones to Lizz Wright would follow. Produced by Craig Street, the album's inventive instrumentation and Wilson's riveting vocal performances transformed songs by Robert Johnson ("Come On In My Kitchen", "Hellhound On My Trail"), Joni Mitchell ("Black Crow"), Van Morrison ("Tupelo Honey") and more.
This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition was mastered by Kevin Gray and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
Wilson has great timing, pacing, and delivery, and certainly has blues sensibility in her sound.
