Guess Who I Saw Today: Nancy Wilson Sings Songs of Lost Love

All Music Guide - John Bush
A song of lost love shouldn't be confused with a torch song. Carrying a torch for someone is a lonely occupation, and torch singers inevitably address only a wall, or a bartender, or perhaps their intended love in absentia. Lost love is a broader lament and can be directed inwardly or outwardly; it can remain alone in its grief or grow accusatory and confrontational.

Many of Wilson's greatest performances fit this disc's concept, suiting her talents at performing songs while adding dramatic turns more associated with speaking than singing. The title track and opener, "Guess Who I Saw Today," is the best, one of her signature songs. Elsewhere she neatly removes the melodrama from "The Days of Wine and Roses" no small feat and injects just the right amount of sober dismissal into "You Can Have Him."

    Awesome

    Ms. Wilson's voice is emotive, nuanced. Perfectly captures the drama of the lyrics.
