“… individuality and authenticity.” – London Jazz News

Cassandra Wilson, widely considered the greatest singer of her generation, changed the way that people thought of jazz with her landmark album Blue Light ‘Til Dawn in 1993. Hailed for its adventurous forays outside the American Songbook, Wilson incorporated blues, country and folk into her work in a brand new way. The album earned her widespread critical acclaim, mainstream commercial success, and the unqualified title “America’s Best Singer” in Time Magazine. Now, 20+ years later, the Grammy-winning vocalist is revisiting her artistic breakthrough with the Blue Light to a New Dawn reissue and tour. The Mississippi born and bred musician is at home belting out jazz chestnuts, caressing banjo-tinged country spirituals and inhabiting the deepest Delta blues.
