This is the future of jazz singing! Cassandra Wilson's landmark recording Blue Light 'Til Dawn was universally declared a masterpiece when released in 1994. Now she has raised the stakes even higher with New Moon Daughter - the consummate statement from one of America's finest young singers. Reunited with producer Craig Street, Cassandra again has chosen some surprising cover tunes (U2 and the Monkees!) and songs such as "Until", "A Little Warm Death" and "Memphis" serve notice that Cassandra is developing as a major songwriter. Classic songs such as Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit", Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and Hoagy Carmichael's "Skylark" get exotic and provocative treatment from Cassandra and her sidemen. And what a list of sidemen: Brandon Ross, Kevin Breit, Gib Wharton and Chris Whitley on guitars; Lonnie Plaxico on bass; Doug Bowne and Cyro Baptista on percussion; and Charlie Burnham on violin. Cassandra incorporates rock, country and blues in a cohesive original way that transcend what is usually considered jazz singing. She again succeeds beyond all expectations with New Moon Daughter.
