I would give it a 10!!!!!

"DANG...Nancy Wilson had and still has one of the most unique voices ever. I remember this album was played in my home when I was a small child. I found this on CD and could immediately call to mind all of the lyrics on most of these songs. Her vocals are "CRISP", JAZZY and "FUN" and I don't imagine she was much older than early twenties for this recording. The Big Band sound, "Guess Who I Saw Today" absolute classic; "If Dreams Come True"...the horn section is KILLER; "This Time the Dreams On Me"....certain Doris Day hated her; "Something Happens to Me"....the shortest, smoothest song in American History....this is one of the absolute BEST RECORDINGS of the Great Nancy Wilson...EVER!!!

P.S. If you didn't come from this era, you should still buy this one, so you can experience REAL MUSIC with REAL VOCALS.
Elegant Sensuality!

"Nancy Wilson gives the impression of holding back huge amounts of elemental power that can be released and restrained in a flash, depending on a songs emotional weather vane. 'Teach Me Tonight' immediately displays the rich colour of her voice. On 'Guess Who I Saw Today', incredulous wounded innocence melts into resignation over her husbands betrayal. 'Something Wonderful' reveals a similar gliding tenderness. Yet this rich voice can swing hard when the occasion arises as with 'If Dreams Come True'. 'The Great City' is a perfectly expressed, stand alone classic followed by 'He's My Guy', where Ben Webster serenades briefly but beautifully. While no great innovator, Nancy Wilson was a supreme stylist with impeccable taste. These recordings represent a stunning set, special then and all too rare today.

A classic Nancy album

"An early "classic" Nancy Album. As usual, Nancy's standards are definitive in my opinion. Her phrasing is what vocal jazz is all about. A must for true vocal jazz connoisseurs."
