Artist Cassandra Wilson Silver Pony Jazz Music Product Type Compact

Attributes: Discs:1. Label: Emm/Blue Note ( BNTE ). Product Type: Compact Disc. Catalog : 629752. UPC: 5099962975223. Configuration: D: CD. Yeah, Cassandra Wilson is a jazz singer, but she sa 21st century jazz singer, mixing elements of jazz, pop, rock, Delta blues, and light funk into her performances, expanding what a jazz vocalist can be in a contemporary world with her horn player phrasing, smoky texture, and a voice that has matured into a haunting, sensual alto. She tackles some jazz standards, but she s also adept at taking modern rock and old country-blues songs and finding a way to make them into new jazz standards, fully aware that she s pushing boundaries in a genre that all too often plays it safe these days. Silver Pony is a delight, with a light, shimmering sound that makes each track feel like it s part of a deliberate yet spontaneous fabric. Wilson and her band (Wilson on vocals and synthesizer, Marvin Sewell on electric guitar, Jonathan Batiste on piano, Reginald Veal on electric bass, Herlin Riley on drums, and Lekan Babalola on percussion; Ravi Coltrane adds saxophone on Silver Moon and John Legend adds vocals and piano on Watch the Sunrise ) recorded live improvisations at European concerts in Warsaw, Seville, and Granada and brought them into the studio to expand and work on with producer John Fischbach, resulting in several new songs, and with a handful of carefully picked songs by writers as diverse as Charley Patton ( Saddle Up My Pony ), Stevie Wonder ( If It s Magic ) and Paul McCartney ( Blackbird ), and with a couple of stone-cold jazz standards (Billie Holiday s Lover Come Back to Me and the traditional Went Down to St. James Infirmary ) to fill in the spaces, Wilson and her band have created a wonderful and almost seamless set of music that explores a lot of territory and yet still keeps its cohesiveness. Steve Leggett, Rovi.

Ella Fitzgerald had recorded live albums in venues ranging from Newport to Berlin to Hollywood when she and a quartet led by Roy Eldridge traveled to Japan in early 1964 for a series of concerts. Norman Granz, the former Verve head and current Fitzgerald manager who accompanied the musicians on their trip, recorded the concerts for release, but the tapes sat unissued in the Verve vaults — a victim of the surplus of Ella material already recorded but not released — for nearly 50 years, until the 2011 two-disc reissue Ella in Japan: ‘S Wonderful. In the early ’60s, Japan was thick with jazz fans, and crowds swarmed the Hibiya Kokaido Public Hall in Tokyo for the January 19 show that is included on the first disc. (The second disc includes a far more exclusive affair, recorded at a hotel a few days later.) Although another live album was recorded and released just a few short months after these shows (Ella at Juan-Les-Pins), the material has few overlaps. Ella is in fine form — as usual, she turned up the candlepower in front of an audience — personalizing Peggy Lee’s “I Love Being Here with You” early in the program, and even singing in Japanese, to the delight of the crowd, during a stirring “‘S Wonderful.”.
