Cassandra Wilson was born on December 4, 1955 in Jackson, The
Mississippi (the USA). To her father guitarist it owes the love
of the music and it begins the training of the piano and the
guitar as of the nine years age. It is finally towards the song
that it is directed and, in the middle of the Sixties ten, it
settles in New York and becomes chorus-singer for various groups.
Its voice and its talent of interpretation end up being pointed
out and Cassandra records its first album solo in 1986. The
success is immediate and since, Cassandra left about fifteen
albums mixes jazz, funk and worked nova or taken again various
artists like Sting or Bob Dylan. Latest to date, “Thunderbird”
is quite as sumptuous as the precedents and emphasizes perfectly
its rich and mélodieuse voice.
