Nancy Wilson

Diva Nancy Wilson was among contemporary music's most stylish and sultry vocalists; while often crossing over into the pop and R&B markets -- and even hosting her own television variety program -- she remained best known as a jazz performer, renowned for her work alongside figures including Cannonball Adderley and George Shearing. Born February 20, 1937, in Chillicothe, OH, Wilson first attracted notice performing the club circuit in nearby Columbus; she quickly earned a growing reputation among jazz players and fans, and she was recording regularly by the late '50s, eventually signing to Capitol and issuing LPs including 1959's Like in Love and Nancy Wilson with Billy May's Orchestra. Her dates with Shearing, including 1960's The Swingin's Mutual, solidified her standing as a talent on the rise, and her subsequent work with Adderley -- arguably her finest recordings -- further cemented her growing fame and reputation.

In the years to follow, however, Wilson often moved away from jazz, much to the chagrin of purists; she made numerous albums, many of them properly categorized as pop and R&B outings, and toured extensively, appearing with everyone from Nat King Cole and Sarah Vaughan to Ruth Brown and LaVern Baker. She even hosted her own Emmy-winning variety series for NBC, The Nancy Wilson Show, and was a frequent guest performer on other programs; hits of the period included "Tell Me the Truth," "How Glad I Am," "Peace of Mind," and "Now, I'm a Woman." Regardless of how far afield she traveled, Wilson always maintained her connections to the jazz world, and in the 1980s, she returned to the music with a vengeance, working closely with performers including Hank Jones, Art Farmer, Ramsey Lewis, and Benny Golson. By the 1990s, she was a favorite among the "new adult contemporary" market, her style ideally suited to the format's penchant for lush, romantic ballads; she also hosted the Jazz Profiles series on National Public Radio.

In the early 2000s, Wilson recorded two albums with Ramsey Lewis for Narada (2002's Meant to Be and 2003's Simple Pleasures). Her 2004 album R.S.V.P. (Rare Songs, Very Personal) was a blend of straight-ahead jazz and ballads, similar to her next record, 2006's Turned to Blue, which, like R.S.V.P., used a different instrumentalist for each track. In 2005, Capitol released a three-part series to pay tribute to Wilson's contributions to music in the '50s and '60s: Guess Who I Saw Today: Nancy Wilson Sings Songs of Lost Love, Save Your Love for Me: Nancy Wilson Sings the Great Blues Ballads, and The Great American Songbook. ~ Jason Ankeny

Her voice is an electric spill of heart, soul, pop & jazz. She has influenced generations of singers, from Barbara Streisand to many soulful R&B divas like Pyllis Hyman and on and on. I borrow her crescendo's when ever I need vocal drama. I Love her!! 'GUESS WHO I SAW TODAY,' so elegantly done.

I'll always remember Nancy Wilson's influence in the 60s. Many great hits. Soo nice to hear her again.

Attended a Nancy Wilson concert with Si Zentner and his orchestra while in college in the mid sixties and she was outstanding - a true talent! The Zentner orchestra was also in fine form, too.

After listening to Nancy for nearly 50 years,I hoped to listen to her another 50 years. To me, she is
the greatest and my all time favorite.

My mom listened to all the greats and I learned to love them too starting in the early 60's. Mom isn't doing well these days at 82, but when we bring music to her room and start playing Nancy, she totally lights up and signs along. Nancy was always her favorite. Maybe that's why she named my sister Nancy. Never wondered about that until just now. My favorite is Guess Who I Saw Today. Love you, Nancy.

I've had the pleasure of being in an audience and listening to Ms. Wilson and I've had the additional pleasure of working security for one of her concerts. It doesn't matter how close or far away from her you are, if you can hear her that voice, that sweet sound, it makes you appreciate the nature talent of the lady. Bravo, bravo, Nancy Wilson forever and a day.
