Cassandra Wilson

Last summer jazz vocalist Cassandra Wilson decided to return to her native Mississippi to record an album. She and her musicians set up in an old train station and the result of the sessions is her new CD, Belly of the Sun (Blue Note), which contains a mixture of blues, pop and bossa nova. Host Lynn Neary talks with Wilson about the recording, the criticism she has received from critics, and what she learned from the experience.
