Cassandra Wilson – She Who Weeps. JMT

Re-issue, Cassandra Wilson’s sublime vocals (listen to the classic Body & Soul) in their earlier days at the start of her journey to become a jazz superstar. Here in 1990 she gives notice of what is to come with her interpretations of both her own and material from Billy Strayhorn, Aretha Franklin etc. She has ideal accompaniment here, particularly pianist Rod Williams and percussionist Tani Tabbal but it¹s always the voice that moves you, timeless yet fragile.
