"Cassandra Wilson’s Loverly features an array of rhythmic feels on some typical jazz standards & a few lesser known songs. Wilson’s low, husky voice oscillates between being syrupy & wispy. Her melodic phrasing is only loosely tethered to the pulse, allowing her to sound reflective & day dreamy no matter what the overall mood of the piece" (

"Wilson hasn't sounded this good for some time-elegant, unforced and buoyant. And in the rhythm. Most of the tracks are underpinned by kit drummer Herlin Riley and Nigerian drummer and percussionist Lekan Babalola. Wilson calls herself the "unproducer," but her decision to create Loverly's arrangements from the drums up, starting with rhythm patterns suggested by Babalola and Riley, contributes immensely to a set shot through with mettle. The drummers are joined by two more class acts, guitarist Marvin Sewell and pianist Jason Moran. Chicago-born Sewell brings a down home directness to the music, Moran a measure of unpredictability. It's an effective combination. Sewell is nicely nasty on a funked-up "St. James Infirmary" (which also features a gutsy cameo from trumpeter Nicholas Payton) and doffs his hat stylishly to slide guitarist Elmore James on "Dust My Broom." Moran solos with abandon on "Caravan" and "Infirmary," and more reflectively on "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most." Wilson herself brings fresh air to some very familiar material. She's utterly poised and in control at slow tempos—as on the gorgeous "Black Orpheus," "'Til There Was You" and a definitive "The Very Thought Of You," given a deliciously slow reading accompanied only by bassist Reginald Veal. And she kicks it out with elan at faster tempos, like the opening "Lover Come Back To Me." (Read more:
