Cassadra Wilson - The Pop Side
Cassandra Wilson has one of the most distinct sounds in vocal jazz, and yet her taste is as versatile as any vocalist in the music's history. Her most recent release on Blue Note Records, Closer To You: The Pop Side, shows how Ms. Wilson and her band can effortlessly transform songs and blend genres, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. Check out this live rendition of Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" - it's live, which is Ms. Wilson at her best - and she'll be singing live for just three nights at the Blue Note this week from March 9 - 11.
