Named “America’s Best Singer” by Time Magazine, two-time Grammy Award-winning Cassandra Wilson first came to prominence through a leading role in Wynton Marsalis’ Pulitzer Prize-winning work Blood on the Fields. Wilson’s restless musical curiosity has seen her move the goalposts of vocal jazz. Blues, country, soul, rock, folk and even some hip hop techniques show off her “dark-treacle voice and precisely calibrated palette.” (Telegraph)
