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
Reviews & Ratings
Over 20 years of performing and recording, award-winning, virtuoso guitarist Andre Feriante has left his musical mark on the classical, world music, and fusion scenes.
Feriante moved to Seattle in the late 1980s, where he continued performing while embarking upon his career as a recording artist. In the early ’90s, he underwent a powerful artistic transition. Many classical guitarists are slavishly tied to the written music they perform, and Feriante wanted desperately to explore the spontaneous creative expression of improvisation. He began to move away from being simply an interpreter of classical music and to explore new uncharted realms of creativity. Inspired by the metaphysical mysticism of the Sufi poet Rumi, and even by the introverted pop balladry of artists such as Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, and Tom Waits, he began writing poetry, painting, and penning more innovative pieces of music that incorporated elements from his many musical influences.
A gracefully seasoned performer, Feriante has dedicated his life to music, and his innovative, effortless style appeals to music lovers of all kinds. For Feriante, making art is about the universal search for healing and for meaning. It’s no longer just about the guitar, or about any instrument, for that matter. Rather, it’s about tapping into something less tangible and more unifying those transcendent, ethereal flashes of human communication that take place when we stop simply listening and give ourselves over completely to the experience of a single, wonderful moment.
