    Wilson and her band have created a wonderful and almost seamless set of music that explores a lot of territory and yet still keeps its cohesiveness.

    As ever, whatever the material, Wilson's smooth but husky-toned vocals are highly distinctive, especially when combined with a delivery that savours every word while remaining loose and languid.

    The program for Silver Pony is a balanced mix of originals, standards, and rearranged pop songs.

    This gifted but sometimes frustrating performer has rarely inhabited her materials so naturally, or put together a tracklist that sounds so powerfully compatible.

    Wilson and her band thrive on musical democracy, where each instrument--even the most famous--gets an equal say in the song.
  6. 60
    Her uneven but warmly satisfying new album, Silver Pony, attempts the best of both worlds.

    This latest recording, however, does more rehashing than reinventing. It suggests, of course, that Cassandra Wilson remains a vital jazz vocalist and a sterling live performer. But as the latest of the singer's recording projects, it is inessential and merely fine.
