The Silver Pony

Silver Pony is an album filled with nostalgia. The cover photo comes from a formative childhood experience for Wilson. “A man came around my neighbourhood in Jackson with a pony and camera, and you could pay to get your picture taken.” Her brothers declined, but the young Wilson longed to have a go and her mother hesitated before relenting. “I’m happy that she let me ride the pony. I was fearless, and I guess she wanted to encourage that.”

Cassandra Wilson interviewed in The Telegraph.
