Cassandra Wilson

The multi talented Cassandra Wilson graces us with a soulful album entitled "Belly Of The Sun." Labeled as o­ne of the top jazz artists of the 1990's, she's still got that deep rich voice filled with emotion and still as enjoyable to listen to. Aside from being blessed with a distinctive voice, she can also play the piano and the guitar. Her style ranges from acoustic blues to folk music with a touch of R&B. There are some gems o­n this album such as "The Weight," a classic written by Robbie Robertson where Cassandra captures the essence of the song, adding her own unique sound to it. "The Waters Of March" is a delightful jazz piece displaying the singer's versatile vocals. James Talyor's "Only A Dream In Rio" has a cool acoustic guitar accompanying Cassandra's soulful voice. The amazingly talented India Arie teams up with Cassandra and Rhonda Richmond o­n the remarkable "Just Another Parade." India & Cassandra sound great together and sing with much emotion. Bob Dylan's "Shelter from The Storm" is also a worthy listen, so is "Show Me A Love."
