Cassandra Wilson

With “Blue Light ’Til Dawn” in 1993, inventive jazz singer Cassandra Wilson expanded the Great American Songbook beyond Broadway and Tin Pan Alley to embrace blues, folk and R&B. The breakthrough album resonated with baby boomers as Wilson reimagined songs by the likes of Joni Mitchell and Van Morrison. Her striking versions of Robert Johnson’s “Come On in My Kitchen” and Ann Peebles’ “I Can’t Stand the Rain” rival the original renditions. Wilson is celebrating the album’s 20th anniversary by releasing a remastered CD (including three unreleased live tracks) and performing the album on tour with some of the musicians who played on it.
