Smooth sounds from Cassandra

As I cracked on with work today I have been listening to one of my favorite artists, Cassandra Wilson, a fair bit. Amazingly I came accross a beautiful track on one of my albums I had never heard before called “Harvest Moon” (how I hadn’t heard it before I don’t know, maybe it was a slow starter so I had skipped it in the past). It bears much resemblence to music from an album called Jazz by Twighlight, but with the added bonus of Cassandra’s wonderful voice. It brought back lots of fond memories, and made me smile and think a little. I post the lyrics below; I hope they mean something to you too. Oh and do check out the track in question, and in fact the whole album from Cassandra. It’s called “New Moon Daughter”

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away.

But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light
We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eye.

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.
