Traveling Miles With Cassandra Wilson

I’ve been an admirer of jazz vocalist Cassandra Wilson ever since I picked up Traveling Miles, her lovely (quasi) tribute to jazz legend Miles Davis. Not a perfect album, but tracks like “Run the Voodoo Down,” “Seven Steps to Heaven” and “When the Sun Goes Down” keep me coming back for more. The album also contains perhaps the finest version of “Time after Time.”

If you haven’t cued up Traveling Miles lately, please do so. Hers is a beautiful voice that demands a listen now and then.
