Glamoured

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ted Panken
Since she hit it big in the mid-‘90s with Blue Light Til Dawn and New Moon Daughter for Blue Note, Cassandra Wilson has covered and composed repertoire that spans New Standard pop, roots music, Brazil, and jazz, blurring the lines between genres with an instantly identifiable tonal personality and flawless musicianship. She addresses a similar mix on Glamoured, her 14th solo release. For covers, Wilson Afro-Cubanizes Bob Dylan’s “Lay, Lady, Lay”; adds an even more delicate wash to Sting’s “Fragile”; transforms Willie Nelson’s “Crazy” into a reflective meditation on human foibles; glides over a rootsy web of guitar, bass, and washboard on “Honey Bee” by fellow ...

Barnes & Noble - Ted Panken
Since she hit it big in the mid-‘90s with Blue Light Til Dawn and New Moon Daughter for Blue Note, Cassandra Wilson has covered and composed repertoire that spans New Standard pop, roots music, Brazil, and jazz, blurring the lines between genres with an instantly identifiable tonal personality and flawless musicianship. She addresses a similar mix on Glamoured, her 14th solo release. For covers, Wilson Afro-Cubanizes Bob Dylan’s “Lay, Lady, Lay”; adds an even more delicate wash to Sting’s “Fragile”; transforms Willie Nelson’s “Crazy” into a reflective meditation on human foibles; glides over a rootsy web of guitar, bass, and washboard on “Honey Bee” by fellow Mississippian Muddy Waters; and parses the inspiring message of Abbey Lincoln’s “Throw It Away” in duet with bassist Reginald Veal. Wilson seamlessly juxtaposes the covers with her own originals, rich with wordplay, metaphoric allusion, and compelling melodies -- it’s a fair bet that some “I Want More,” “Heaven Knows,” and “Broken Drum” for starters will enter the Pop canon as grist for ambitious singers of the future. Where on past albums Wilson’s stylistic eclecticism occasionally seemed mannered and forced, on Glamoured -- with help from pop-savvy producer Fabrizio Sotti and creative input from virtuosos like guitarist Brandon Ross, harmonica player Gregoire Maret, and drummer Teri Lyne Carrington -- she sounds wholly at one with her material, channeling the spirit of reverie that the Gaelic title meaning “to be whisked away implies.
