by Lizz Wright
Released: Sep 2010
Label: Verve Forecast
A tantalizing talent who recalls Mavis Staples as much as Cassandra Wilson, Lizz Wright has done everything from supper-club standards to neo-soul and sophisticated acoustic blues. Wright can now add gospel to the mix with this powerfully inspirational set. Whereas Wright once played the ingenue, here she sounds worldly and wise beyond her years (think of Curtis Mayfield and socially conscious '70s soul). The guests include everyone from Angelique Kidjo to indie rocker Joan As Policewoman, both of whom wrote songs especially for this album, along with Meshell Ndegeocello.
