“Her music embraces the paradox between harshness… and glamour… Her voice is another instrument in the band.”—NPR Music
Genre defying vocalist Cassandra Wilson's latest album, Another Country, represents a strong departure from her previous material focusing largely on guitar-oriented sounds. To foster this new musical direction she again collaborated ... Read more in Amazon's Cassandra Wilson Store

This is no easy listen... sparse, complex, often brooding arrangements coupled with Cassandra Wilson's deep, earthy voice and complicated phrasing demand your attention. Waver and you're lost. But... give this album the listening time & space it deserves and reap the rewards. Unusual, highly atmospheric tracks that combine superb singing and marvellously "distant" musical backings to weave real magic.

Cassandra Wilson's own excellent, jazz tinged compositions sit alongside a stunning set of ingenious covers from a highly diverse spectrum of composers. "Last Train To Clarksville" is transformed from a catchy pop song into a stripped-down and genuinely effective jazz vocal work-out. "Harvest Moon" slows down Neil Young's already wistful ballad to an almost painful level and, in so doing, takes it to an even higher level of gentle reflection. Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" & U2's "Love Is Blindness" are transformed into 3 in the morning jazz club classics. The vocals and backing to Robert Johnson's "32-20" are simplified to the point where only the essence of the blues is allowed to shine and, Lewis Allan's "Strange Fruit" becomes as desolate and challenging as it's horrific lyrics.

Clever, very effective and worth the required effort!

For once here is a CD by an artist that creates creative jazz interpretations of popular songs. Do not expect the usual 'jazzed up' covers that we are all so used to hearing. This is an intelligent and beautiful piece of work. Sung beautifully and backed by fantastic musicians, an essential part of your music collection.

This is such a gem of an album. Her treatment of "Last Train to Clarksville" is worth the price alone. Superb musicianship with a fantastic, distinctive, "classic" jazz voice.

The title here is provocative - the New Moon, the sleeve notes tell us from an Ashanti proverb, "cures disease". I see the album more in terms of being in the dark and the efforts of people to move themselves out of it.
The opening song, however, is an arrangement of that great Billie Holiday standard "Strange Fruit" and I have to say, I really don't it, which is rare for me, as a really intense music lover. The golden rule of covering classic songs is only do them if you can do them better or do them justice. This rendition does neither. The instrumental arrangements are broken, trying to create, as far as I feel it, a hard atmosphere of the streets racked by poverty, despair and broken lives. But the lyrics of "Strange Fruit" so clearly depict a certain time, space and place in black history that this attempt to update just jars. The lyrics are not flexible enough to allow for that. Billie Holiday's renditions were always musically swamped with the perfume she sung about pierced by the horror of dead bodies on the landscape. All of that atmospheric realism is completely lost here and comes across confused and so without impact. It's the kind of song that if you do it, you've got to do it straight because the words are everything. Even Tori Amos understood that in her admirable cover of it a few years ago. For me, Wilson's version is the real low-point of the whole album.
On the plus side then, the album can only get better !
"Love Is Blindness" is fabulous. This cover hits the mark. It gathers up all the deep emotion that Bono may have missed in the U2 version originally. This song really speaks of humanity, and thank goodness after the opening track. "Solomon Sang" is Wilson written and rather good.

The most impressive thing about Cassandra's output isn't how innovatively she interprets others work (Miles, Neil Young, Robert Wilson, U2), it's her own songs. I look forward to an album of purely self penned material, then her place in jazz history's songbook will be assured. The richness of the instrumentation, especially the percussion is a joy to behold.
