Cassandra Wilson - Light ‘Till Dawn (Blue Note)
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.
