    Personnel: Cassandra Wilson (vocals); Steve Coleman (alto saxophone, percussion); Grachan Moncur III (trombone); Jean-Paul Bourelly (guitar);
    Lonnie Plaxico (acoustic & electric basses); Mark Johnson (drums).
    Recorded at Systems Two, Brooklyn, New York in December 1985.
    Digitally remastered by Adrian Von Ripka (Bauer Studios, Ludwigsburg).
    Cassandra Wilson's debut as a leader features the chance-taking singer in a funky M-Base setting. The overcrowded ensembles (played by altoist Steve Coleman, trombonist Grachan Moncur III, guitarist Jean-Paul Bourelly, bassist Lonnie Plaxico, and drummer Mark Johnson) did not leave much space for a singer, but the flexible Wilson did her best to find a role for her voice, and she sounds enthusiastic. In addition to group originals, the sextet performs "Blue in Green" (which has Wilson's lyrics) and "I Wished on the Moon." ~ Scott Yanow
