With its mesmeric mesh of styles, all unified by Wilson’s husky, seductive, contralto voice, Glamoured remains a potent crystallization of her unique style and a key entry in the singer’s canon. Its unusual title took inspiration from the poetry of Irish poet WB Yeats, who used the word in its original Gaelic definition, describing the effect of being whisked away in a dream-like state by fairies. Certainly, it’s an apt title as Wilson creates an immersive and spellbinding musical experience on an album that hit No.2 on Billboard’s Top Jazz Albums list.

Sixteen years on from its original release, fans have the opportunity to re-evaluate Glamoured on a double-vinyl reissue mastered from the recently-discovered original analogue tapes. It’s one of 18 titles released in Blue Note’s ongoing 2019 Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series, for which noted mastering engineer Kevin Gray and producer Joe “Tone Poet” Harley have produced definitive, high-quality editions of the iconic jazz label’s classic albums. It stands alongside Wayne Shorter’s Etcetera and Chick Corea’s Now He Sings, Now He Sobs as another work destined to impress the audiophiles among Blue Note fans. – U Discover Music
