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

The sound needed to be adjusted for Sister Sparrow. Could not hear the vocals over the instruments. They were a great group, it just upset me that I could not make out what was being sung. I preferred the opening act, Jelly Bread. They were fantastic and the sound was good. I'd go see them any day. The drummer blew me away. He's a great drummer and vocalist. All four musicians were excellent. The group was funkadelic and got me up and dancing. Loved them. I gave only 4 stars because of the lousy sound for SS & TDBs.
