About Cassandra Wilson ticketsJazz singer Cassandra Wilson has a voice that bleeds vulnerability, honesty and intimacy, a style that lays it all out and strips bare the boundaries of self-consciousness, commercial obsequiousness, and needs for approval. When she sings, she tells it like it is and defines the way it needs to be. Particularly appealing is Wilson's ability to reflect through her arrangements the deepest meaning of the songs' lyrics, and to intertwine her voice with the music until they become indistinguishable. Born in in 1955 in Jackson, Mississippi, Cassandra Wilson picked up music early on, learning the piano, clarinet, then guitar, and writing her own songs. After finishing college at Jackson State University, she moved to New Orleans for a day job at a local television station, but instead found encouragement from local jazz stalwarts like Ellis Marsalis and Alvin Batiste. She met alto saxophonist Steve Coleman and became one of the founding members of the M-Base collective, a loose group of musicians who focused on creative expression and incorporated their avant-garde rethinking into funk and soul. Meanwhile, Cassandra Wilson cultivated her solo career, signing with the Munich-based label JMT and releasing her debut album as a leader, Point of View in 1986. In her albums since, including 1988's superb Blue Skies and 1993's Blue Light 'Til Dawn, display the development of her vocal instrument beyond simple singing. Rather, Wilson has advanced her technique into a refined instrument for excavating musical possibilities, and she has the singular ability to move listeners, especially live, into moods dictated by her. Pick up Cassandra Wilson tickets and prepare to be mesmerized at her will.
