Half Notes: Cassandra Wilson – Glamoured (2003)

Ooooh baby … just one listen to Wilson’s gorgeous and sultry voice intertwined with Willie Nelson’s classic melody from “Crazy” is enough to make me think things I just shouldn’t be thinkin’! Glamoured doesn’t stray far from Wilson’s past styles … with some originals and some covers, all done with that sparse and full of air combination of bass, acoustic guitar and voluptuous voice. But hey, she can ride that style from here on in. I won’t tire of it. Phew!, it’s gettin’ hot in here.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
