Biography

“Her music embraces the paradox between harshness… and glamour… Her voice is another instrument in the band.”—NPR Music
Genre defying vocalist Cassandra Wilson's latest album, Another Country, represents a strong departure from her previous material focusing largely on guitar-oriented sounds. To foster this new musical direction she again collaborated ... Read more in Amazon's Cassandra Wilson Store

Customer Reviews

This album is a wonderful tribute to the late great Miles Davis.
Gilly Bean
Granted the style is very different than that of Miles seeing as how Cassandra has a much more velvety, soft voice it is still an excellent tribute to Miles work.
William M. Rand
I would recommend this album to anyone with even the slightest interest in jazz.

As I grow older and demand something more interesting and innovative to listen to ,yet produce a rewarding result,I am constantly prepared to persevere with something conceptual and unusual.This tribute to Miles Dewey Davis, and a showcase to the talent and ambition of Ms Wilson,is just such a recording. From the outset this is an adult work,at times not quite hitting the mark,but bursting with genuine emotion and interpretative understanding that Miles would have surely approved.
I would recommend that this CD be listened to at least four or five times before passing any form of judgement..in fact it is playing as I type this review.It is a multi layered and complicated and yet at times jazzy and delicate, being a showcase for Ms Wilson's at times,*whiskey and cigarette* voice and at other times husky and melancholy delivery.At all times her vocals are interesting,and I note a pleasing duet with another great voice,Angelique Kidjo,on the final cut,Voodoo Reprise.Ms Wilson 's range is substantial and hynotic on this CD.I will, with relish, listen to her previous recordings of jazz standards and blues influenced material,for a further fix.
The CD opens with one of the stronger tracks,Run The Voodoo Down,and closes with a Reprise.The music of Miles Davis is complimented by the lyrics of Ms Wilson perfectly and this is an interpretive funky fusion of Afro beats and deep earthy vocals which set a pace that is continued throughout the CD.In fact praise should be given to the musicians on this CD,especially to the percussion and base credits of Lonnie Plaxico on acoustic base on most tracks and Jeffrey Haynes on percussion.It is pleasing to see a jazz artist stretch the boundaries and include mandolin,greek bazouki,harmonica,and an assortment of guitar variations.

Excellent tribute to my favorite artist, Miles Dewey Davis. This is music that you listen to in the dark, from another room with your eyes closed and you take this beautiful voyage riding on the deep and soulful voice of Cassandra Wilson. She flows so well and reaches deep inside and when you do open your eyes, it is only to put this CD on repeat and succumb to her entrancing voice. "Sky and Sea"(Blue and Green) is outstanding and her cover of "Time after time" had to impress Cyndy Lauper and definetly make Miles smile. One to keep in the carousel.

I've been a fan of Cassandra Wilson's song stylings since I picked up Blue Skies, a album of jazz standards. Her smoky alto and impeccable delivery were magnificent and made me a fan forever. I will admit that it took some time for Traveling Miles to grow on me. I love her voice and would listen to her sing just about anything, but I wasn't feeling this CD immediately -- it seemed a little skittish what with her eclectic influences. But I soon realized that her eclectic sensibilities are what makes her one of my favorite artists.

This album is wonderful, I can't take it out of my CD player. The New York Times recommended it as one of several releases in 1999 that adults would really enjoy and they are absolutely right. Ms. Wilson has taken Miles Davis' music and put her own stamp on it and the result is beautiful. It's not all Miles, however. In particular, I enjoy her version of Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time. It sheds new light on that song. I would recommend this album to anyone with even the slightest interest in jazz. It's really quite a find.

This album is a wonderful tribute to the late great Miles Davis. Whether they be songs that were written by Miles (to which Cassandra has written lyrics), or songs that Miles covered himself, or the 3 songs completely written by Cassandra, I think, no, I know, that Miles would be very happy with this album. She has a knack of creating a beautiful jazz atmosphere, using instruments that are not traditionally associated with jazz, like the greek bazouki and mandocello. This album will transport you to a small, intimate, after hours jazz club. Close your eyes, relax, and let your mind wander. This is a wonderful album...a must have for jazz lovers.

I'm a big Cassandra Wilson for many years now. Once I stood in line at the Variety Play House in Atlanta for 5 hours just to see her Traveling Miles Tour. The CD is tight and has a permanant spot in my #10 slot in my CD changer. Her voice is the deepest, sexest, alto/tenor voice I've ever heard. Miles is a great man and Cassandra did him great justice on this one. Her stage performance is the best. I look forward to hearing from her again soon.

This is an amazing recording. Cassandra Wilson uses her voice as an instrument of the highest level. She sets the gold standard for modern jazz vocalists, with her velvet smooth sound. Her interpretation of these Miles Davis standards brings a fresh viewpoint to well known and often copied songs. She is true to the feeling and emotion that Miles brought to these songs. I only wish Miles and Cassandra were able to collaborate on this recording.
