Cassandra Wilson - Coming Forth By Day

I've heard about a dozen Billie Holiday remembrance albums so far this year. Understandable, as she would be 100 years old this year. This one blows them all away. While most simply make me want to toss the tribute out and run back to the original recordings, Cassandra has created a powerful dream sequence which is a moving statement of Billie Holiday's effect on our lives. Sixty minutes of bliss. Thank you Cassandra.
