One important note here: Nancy Wilson donated all proceeds she received from this cd to the Manchester Craftsman Guild in Pittsburgh, Pa. for poor under-privileged minority children. Nancy Wilson is 78 years old and residing in Pioneertown, California. Needless to say, Nancy Wilson's greatest singing voice was during her Capitol Records years: 1959 - 1979.
“Nancy Wilson Christmas”, released by Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild (MCG Jazz) label in 2001, contains 13 songs. I have compiled a detailed song listing (including album label & number, year of release):
LP “NANCY WILSON CHRISTMAS” (MCG Jazz 1008)(2001):
01 Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!*with Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Star Big Band
02 Sweet Little Jesus Boy*with New York Voices
03 White Christmas
04 Silver Bells!*with Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Star Big Band
05 What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?*original single version first released in 1963
06 All Through The Night
07 O Christmas Tree
08 O Holy Night
09 Carol of the Bells*with New York Voices
10 God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen!*with Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Star Big Band
11 Christmas Time Is Here
12 Angels We Have Heard On High
13 The Christmas Song
1 With the release of over 70 albums, I was slightly surprised to find that this set was the first complete Christmas album that Nancy Wilson has recorded – truly better late than never! She was surrounded by her friends like Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Star Big Band, New York Voices, Marty Ashby on guitar, Jay Ashby as arranger, Herbie Mann on flute, just to name a few.
2 The sound is very well remastered. Nancy was in top form. All the instruments are clearly defined.
3 There is a fold-out 8 page booklet, with a personal essay by Nancy Wilson, plus an introduction to the charity work by MCG.
As noted above, this set was the first Christmas CD by Nancy Wilson, her 52nd domestic release. The entire set is totally enjoyable, and is recommended to all Nancy Wilson fans.
However, it is her versions of "Christmas Time is Here" from "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and the Nat King Cole classic "The Christmas Song" that show Wilson at her most captivating and evocative. These are the tunes that bring the spirit of the season alive.
No one does it better than Nancy.
