Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More

it was a fine performance, good musicianship and style. however i was somewhat disappointed - i wanted to hear much more hoagy carmichael music that was played. my giving the performance only three stars was because of the disappointment, not about the group or emily asher.

“Emily Asher’s Garden Party is a deliberately prosaic name deviously calculated to describe a very exciting combo … In traditional jazz, the trombone comes closest to the human voice, although up to now it’s rarely been cast as a distinctly female voice.” —The Wall Street Journal
“As a trombonist, her tone is warm and smooth but she’s not afraid to mix it up in the ensembles, showing a natural gift for the joys of polyphonic improvisation. As a singer, Asher’s voice is unfailingly sweet and earnest, one created for music such as this.” —Ricky Riccardi, Louis Armstrong Biographer
