Madison 2002 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Orpheum Theater, Madison, WI; October 4, 2002. Fairly to very good audience recording.

American jazz singer, songwriter, and producer Cassandra Wilson has been described by jazz critic Gary Giddins as “a singer blessed with an unmistakable timbre and attack [who has] expanded the playing field” by incorporating blues, country, and folk music into her work.

In 2002, she released the album Belly Of The Sun. David R Adler of AllMusic stated: “Cassandra Wilson continues to move down a highly eclectic path on Belly of the Sun, the somewhat belated follow-up to Traveling Miles. While displaying a jazz singer’s mastery of melodic nuance and improvisatory phrasing, Wilson draws on a variety of non-jazz idioms - roots music, rock, Delta blues, country, soul - to create a kind of earthy, intelligent pop with obvious crossover appeal”.

Marshall Bowden of PopMatters commented: “If, despite all that, all you can worry about is whether Belly of the Sun is a “real” jazz album or not, it’s your problem, not Cassandra’s. The table has been set and the meal is a sumptuous one. Whether you partake or not is your gain or loss.” - wikipedia

  10. Dear Big O,
    Please stop posting shows from female artists as it distracts me from my favorite pastime of thinking about male genitals. I find it very hard to make a comment about my favorite subject (Uns) when the artist is not male.
    Thank you.
