Silver Pony by Cassandra Wilson
Released: Nov 2010
Label: Blue Note Records
This 2010 set mixes concert recordings and studio cuts. It illustrates what a rich and varied career Cassandra Wilson has enjoyed, from the post-bop reading of "Lover Come Back To Me" to the upscale jazz-funk of "St. James Infirmary" (where she stays deliciously behind the beat), the delta-blues of "Saddle Up My Pony" and the cozy, star-reaching cover of "Blackbird." "If It's Magic" and the lush chamber piece "Watch The Sunrise" -- a duet with John Legend -- shows off more of Wilson's pleasing artistic puzzle.
