Synopsis

Amazon.com
Although Dinah Washington was one of her major influences, Nancy Wilson is more a song stylist than a jazz singer, drawing equally from the blues, R&B, and gospel. This gem from 1964 features Wilson interpreting a number of the era's pop standards, each delivered in less than 3 minutes. Whether frolicking on Antonio Carlos Jobim's beloved bossa nova, the "One Note Samba," the Latin lilt of "On Broadway," or belting the blues on the Ray Charles hits "Unchain my Heart" and "I Can't Stop Loving You," Wilson's clear diction lights up the tunes. Her ballad renditions of Anthony Newley's "What Kind of Fool Am I?" and the Burt Bacharach-Hal David waltz "Wives and Lovers" show why she still reigns as one of music's greatest divas. --Eugene Holley Jr.
 

CD Reviews

One of Many Outstanding Albums Nancy Made in the Sixties
10/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I didn't know so much could be made out of "Call Me Irresponsible" and "Our Day Will Come". Wow, is she ever a great singer! Those songs don't give a singer much to work with. She nails "Go Away Little Boy", "The Good Life", "Wives and Lovers" and "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" even better than you can imagine her doing them. Her accompaniment is all small group, with particularly wonderful piano playing by Lou Levy."

"The remixing could have done a better job of letting Nancy's voice be the most important part of the music. The base is particularly dominant in several pieces and it sounds like Nancy is almost backup to the instruments. There is a flatness to the music, too. This may be all the mixer had to work with, but Nancy's voice is certainly not "out front." the 3 star rating is more for the mixing than her voice or the songs."
