CASSANDRA , “SILVER PONY,” FOR 9 ON ;

FEATURING SPECIAL GUESTS RAVI COLTRANE &

Silver Pony, the stunning new album from multiple Grammy Award-winning -pop chanteuse Cassandra Wilson, will be released by EMI’s Blue Note Records on November 9. Wilson , whose remarkable, husky-tinged vibrato has created a trademark sound for her as an artist, will be touring worldwide in support of the release which features special guests saxophonist Ravi Coltrane (“Silver Moon”) and R&B singer-songwriter John Legend (“Watch The Sunrise”).

A unique hybrid live/studio album, Silver Pony moves seamlessly between live recordings from a European tour and studio recordings laid down at New Orleans ‘ Piety Street Studios. The album features a mix of jazz/pop classics as well as songs newly-written by Cassand ra and her band .

Silver Pony draws its title from an experience which Cassand ra had as a child and which left an indelible mark in her memory bank, and thus on her career itself. “A man came around my neighborhood in Jackson , Mississippi , with a pony and camera,” she recalls. “You could pay to get your picture taken.” Her brothers declined, but Cassand ra was eager. Her mother hesitated-“there were certain things young ladies just didn’t do,” Wilson adds. But Cassand ra seized the moment, got the picture. “I’m so happy she let me ride the pony,” she says now. “I was fearless, and I guess she wanted to encourage that in me.” That priceless photo is now featured on the cover of “Silver Pony,” and such fearlessness now fuels Wilson ‘s work. “I prepare for each recording but you can never truly prepare,” Wilson says. “Because you don’t really know what’s coming. You just place yourself in the circumstances that will allow the project to reveal itself.”
