Legendary Vocal Artist Cassandra Wilson Signs with eOne Music.  

Wilson’s new studio album, Another Country,  released on June 2012. A majority of the songs on the new album were written by Wilson herself, or co-written with her collaborator, guitarist and producer Fabrizio Sotti. The album was recorded in Florence, Italy and New Orleans, and is described in a press release as “largely guitar-based.”

On her 19th album, Cassandra Wilson, changes directions once more. Well known for her blues, soul, pop covers, and jazz standards, her smoky alto bends almost everything to its will. Wilson's phrasing is utterly unique, as original as any horn player's or pianist's music.  
She wrote all but three selections here: there are two instrumentals by Sotti and a reading of "O Sole Mio." Other players include bassist Nicola Sorato, Julien Labro on accordion, and percussionists Mino Cinelu and Lekan Babalola.
