Editors’ Notes Cassandra Wilson proves that it's possible to produce crossover textures and postmodern concepts at the same time. Given her ability to switch between a wealth of effects—including Delta blues exhortations, seductive R&B moods, and funk drive—that fit easily inside her husky vocal range, she can confound our expectations even when singing a familiar pop standard. With a catalog that encompasses jazz standards made famous by Billie Holiday as well as Lennon-McCartney compositions, Wilson boasts an artful mix of populist appeal and experimental daring that distinguishes her playlist.
