READ

KEEP (IT) SWINGING
She surprises with the tunes she selected, like a Joni Mitchell song or Robert Johnson originals. Her selections are often notable: the surprising thing about it is, that she always selects tunes that seem to be forgotten or neglected by others. […]

Sun Star Celebrity
Wilson’s deserved reputation for reinterpreting old Delta Blues tunes is showcased on her hard-driving version of Charlie Patton’s “Saddle Up My Pony,” enhanced by Marvin Sewell’s twangy slide guitar work. That’s followed by a drumless version of Stevie Wonder’s “If It’s Magic” that Wilson sings at a sensuous languid tempo to a delicate guitar-piano accompaniment. […]

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