Black Sun is a collaboration between the band Harriet Tubman and vocalist Cassandra Wilson. In the words of Jazzwise Magazine “This project is totally new for Wilson…where Wilson is a part of this band” It goes on to say, “it suits her and them, and the sound is really sensational.” Harriet Tubman (the band) consists of drummer J.T. Lewis, bassist Melvin Gibbs, and guitarist/banjoist/singer Brandon Ross. Harriet Tubman (the band) has been described as “loud, heavily rock influenced and very passionate about their compositions and musical heritage – they seek to explore in their music the deep southern delta blues and yet further back to their African forefathers.”

In addition to bringing her unparalleled skills as a singer to Black Sun, Cassandra brings her considerable skills as a composer and guitarist as well. Jazzwise said “this simply isn’t Ms Wilson with a new band – this is a whole new identity for her”. Black Sun bridges the worlds of jazz, pop, and rock, as it melds the cultures of Ms. Wilson’s native Mississippi and Tubman’s native New York while connecting them back to Africa. The result, according to Jazz Journal, is “a beguiling, contemporary take on black roots music in all its forms.”

This event will occur as scheduled.
