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

12 piece band! Each of them a great musician and performer. I really enjoyed hearing them play Steely Dan, and afterwards spoke a bit with one of the dingers, very friendly, no attitude. A nice venue, too, not stadium seating but individual tables on a gently sloping floor so all had a good view.

The concert was just so-so. A few of the songs were performed very well and I enjoyed those. The rest were mediocre as was the concert in general. The lead singer needs to get his hands out of his pockets and be more approachable to the audience.
Quotes & Highlights
Based in Seattle Washington, Nearly Dan is made up of 14 local and national musicians who share a passion for the distinctive music of Steely Dan — revered for inventive music-making, jazz-infected lush harmonies and their own lyrical color.
The individual Nearly Dan members come from across genres — from rock, R&B and country to fusion, swing and jazz — and have received training at institutions from Berklee College of Music in Boston, to University of Washington and Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.
Endorsed by the company they keep, this group’s musicians have performed with greats such as Ray Charles, George Benson, Diane Schuur, Lou Rawls, Basia, Huey Lewis, Tower Of Power, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Tito Puente, Natalie Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Gladys Knight, Julio Iglesias, and Roberta Flack.
Perhaps the best part of this band is that it doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Anyone who knows the music of Steely Dan, also knows that only fabulous musicians can pull it off! A challenge this group is energized by, and rises to!
