Released:
Label: Blue Note Records
On this tantalizing 2008 release, Cassandra Wilson returns to standards and strips down to a working band. Yet Wilson keeps the atmospheric Americana guitar sound of her recent recordings throughout, which lends a laidback air to the proceedings. Don't confuse "laidback" with "lazy" -- Wilson and her band are locked in and working at the top of their craft. The set features Jason Moran on piano and a guest appearance by trumpeter Nicholas Payton. Anyone who wants to study the jazz art of singing behind the beat should listen to Loverly repeatedly. OK, so should everyone else.
