Cassandara Wilson returns to her Mississippi blues roots!

Blue Note released Cassandra Wilson's album Belly Of The Sun in 2002. The album, which was recorded in the Clarksdale, Mississippi train station, features a guest appearance from India.Arie for the song "Just Another Parade."

"Returning to her Mississippi blues roots, singer Cassandra Wilson interprets the stories like no one else can. Her warm, contralto voice hypnotizes. Surrounded by the natural sound of her 6-piece touring band, Wilson settles in for a refreshing look at Americana. Plaintive guitar cries and hands-down percussion provide a natural landscape. Steel pans, dobro, hand drums, and gentle, foot-stompin' rhythms give her traditional session credibility.

"Guests add variety. Boogaloo Ames supplies an unencumbered, barrelhouse accompaniment for two traditional songs. The duo simplicity of singer with piano makes them shine with a special element — a lesson in history. Their charming interpretation inspires. Elsewhere, Wilson adds variety in form. "Show Me A Love" and "Road So Clear" caress a modern, electric blues message. "Hot Tamales" and "You Gotta Move", recorded in a railroad boxcar, come from way back, drawing upon spiritual and field holler roots. India.Arei's vocal duet with Wilson pierces the heart with its soul-stirring message. While Jobim's "Waters of March" does not fit the tried-and-true formula, it allows Wilson the opportunity to lighten her session with a message that speaks, nevertheless, the same language as the blues: A promise of good times ahead. A highly recommended album, Belly Of the Sun returns to the land where it all began and takes us along for a soul stirring ride." — Jim Santella, All About Jazz.com, April 12, 2002

Outstanding on all accounts.

There's just one thing left for Pure Pleasure Records to do: start putting out 45rpms of these records, just follow the example of Analogue Production, Music Matters and ORG
