Editorial Reviews

Product Description

ALL of her Columbia hits on one CD (a first!) and a previously unreleased "after hours mix" of I Can't Make You Love Me . Includes Don't Ask My Neighbors; Do You Still Dream About Me; Love Won't Let Me Wait , and many Capitol tracks, with guests ranging from Ramsey Lewis to Cannonball Adderley!

Amazon.com

Two tracks from Nancy Wilson's early Capitol Records years outclass everything else on this compilation, which otherwise concentrates on the jazz/pop/lite-R&B singer's '80s and '90s work for Columbia. On the two torchy Capitol tracks, "Guess Who I Saw Today" and "Save Your Love for Me" (the latter from Wilson's 1962 collaboration with Cannonball Adderley), she blends strong, bluesy chops with bittersweet sentiments. The more recent stuff is hardly as straightforward; most of the time, her vocals are swamped by ricky-tick adult-contemporary production that renders the music fit only for smooth-jazz radio. And when Wilson does slip into a stripped-down trio format with the likes of Brad Mehldau and Christian McBride on Stephen Sondheim's "Loving You," she still has to contend with bland duet partner Peabo Bryson. Greatest Hits serves mainly to point out the fact that Nancy Wilson best uses her voice these days as host of public radio's Jazz Profiles. --Rickey Wright

Bravo Nancy Wilson!

The inclusion of two tracks from her early years at Capitol are also a nice addition to this album.

When someone sustains a musical career for forty years and counting, there's got to be a good reason. In the case of jazz singer Nancy Wilson it's that voice, that heartstoppingly warm, awe-inspiringly wise voice that caresses phrases with the touch of a lover, always mindful of when to hold back and when to let loose. Her gift has only gotten richer and more beautiful with time, to which this collection of hits from Columbia Records is ample testament.
Two tracks from her early years are featured, back when her voice sounded a little sweeter and girlish; still, she gives "Save Your Love for Me" (with Cannonball Adderly) a moving once-over that will leave you breathless, and "Guess Who I Saw Today" proves that she always had chops beyond her years. The rest of the songs are from the 80's and 90's, representing Nancy's more pop- and R&B-flavored work. But Nancy makes a strong argument that a song doesn't have to be written by Gershwin or Cole Porter to be given a mature, jazzy performance, and as a result, Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me," the Emotions' "Don't Ask My Neighbors," Bill Withers' "Hello Like Before" and Marvin Gaye's "Just to Keep You Satisfied" all recieve renditions of the highest order, crossing genres in an easy, even motion.
The album's finest moment, however, is "When October Goes." Placed in the dead center of the record, this beautiful, wistful track makes for the perfect centerpiece as Wilson wraps her vocals around the arty ballad that was a posthumous collaboration between Barry Manilow and the late Johnny Mercer.

It's been quite a while since I first heard the voice of Nancy Wilson. About 30 years or so.
It's also been about ten years since I had listened to one of her "records".
Then, while browsing through a music store, I heard a voice from the past and recognized it immediately.
I not only bought this CD on the spot, but several others to replace the old vinyl LP's that have been gathering dust.
Classics never go out of style.

this woman is superbad.her voice just gets better with time.she has so much range and style it's unbelievable.i love her tone and this hits set showcases her legend.we need more vocalist like her.people that make time-less quality sounding records and that go from decade to decade still in top form.she is a jewel and a foxy lady as well.

Don't listen to Ricky Wright's review, which says that Nancy is best heard speaking rather than singing. How untrue. But I don't have to defend Nancy Wilson's career. She has been around since the late 50s, has over 60 albums, has won a grammy, an emmy and countless other awards, has a star on the Walk of Fame, sells out concerts continually, and is revered by true artists in the industry. No -- Nancy's achievments speak for themselves.
I would have given the album five stars, like I have given all of the other Nancy albums I have reviewed, but I don't believe this material represents her best work. They should have chosen more from the critically acclaimed "Love, Nancy" album, from "With My Lover Beside Me" and from her older selections. But then again, I believe that Nancy actually helped select the material, and she is most proud of the Lady With a Song album (which I don't think comes close to Love, Nancy). In any event, Nancy is great -- she continues to capture the hearts of new generations. I am glad that people as young as I, who were not around while Nancy when Nancy was in her heyday, can still enjoy her music. Nancy, we love you!!!

I am sick and tired of Nancy's fans on Amazon trashing her 80's and 90's recordings at Columbia. Granted the material wasn't as strong as her Sixties stuff, but what is? Times change and even artists have to grow and move on, and Nancy Wilson is no exception. The Eighties saw a proliferation of slick R&B/Adult Contemporary material due to the enormous success of artists like Anita Baker and Sade. I'm sure Nancy had Ms. Baker in mind when she and her producers selected material for her Columbia albums. We're talking about a 20 to 25 year time span since her Sixties heyday and it would be unfair to compare all this stuff to her work at Capitol.
I would suggest to any fan of Nancy Wilson or Dinah Washington (whom Nancy bears remarkable stylistic similarities) to give this Greatest Hits compilation a try, especially if you see a great price somewhere. The CD is still impeccably sung (just like all Nancy Wilson albums are -- no matter what decade we're talking about), and yes, the years have been kind to Nancy because her incisive phrasing and breath control are sharp as ever. Though one or two tracks here are over-produced, the rest is quite enjoyable. If nothing else, buy this CD just to hear how well Nancy's vocals have aged. Like fine wine, some things just get better, and Ms. Wilson is one of them.

This recording is evidence that the work of this prolific artist is something that should be cherished for generations to come. Here is an artist who could simply ride on the success of her recordings of classic songs and yet, brilliantly takes on contemporary material with the same personalized style and success. Few artists are able to pull this off with such quality. The selections on this CD are from some of the treasures of past recordings plus a few additional songs that even the true Nancy Wilson fan will delight in hearing for the first time. If you weren't a fan of Nancy Wilson before hearing this CD, you will be by the time you experience the final track.
