Reissue of Billboard's Top Jazz Album of 1989
In this third production under her name, Cassandra Wilson dug deeply into the rich mine of jazz standards and brought to the surface tunes that are classic yet not overstrained. Cassandra moves in the area of jazz standards with the same ease as in her own music, represented on her first two albums, never failing to put her own stamp on the music. Her vocals are artful instead of artificial, forceful instead of forced, and there is no fooling around with unnecessary ornamentation every note is sincere.
