The expanded 20th anniversary edition of 'Blue Light ‘Til Dawn,' adds three previously unreleased live recordings from Wilson's 1994 European tour to the digitally remastered album.
'Blue Light ‘Til Dawn,’ Wilson’s Blue Note Records debut, broke new ground by providing an alternate route to vocal jazz stardom, mining blues, folk and R&B. Along with three original compositions and innovative takes on blues and jazz standards, Wilson provided a radical treatment of popular music including Van Morrison’s “Tupelo Honey,” Joni Mitchell’s “Black Crow,” and Ann Peebles’ “I Can’t Stand The Rain.”
Wilson’s unique approach to rhythm allowed her to blend unusual melodies and harmonies with a band that used inventive instrumentation and virtuosic performance to create a wholly original sound. Cassandra's album also opened a new door for jazz vocalists, among them Norah Jones, who has stated that she studied the album while composing and arranging her own Blue Note debut. The original producer of the album, Craig Street, oversaw the remastering of this edition with Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound, who has mastered albums by Bob Dylan, The Beatles and Paul Simon.
