Overview

Once again, Capitol finds a way to repackage its vast vocal holdings. Not a bad thing really, especially considering the sheer quality of songs from label swells like Mel Tormé, June Christy, and Peggy Lee, not to mention such low-profile staffers as Keely Smith, Matt Monro, and Margaret Whiting. Well, this time Capitol brings its treasures to the post-grunge and electronica masses on their Great Ladies (and Gentlemen) of Song series. Packing each disc with 20 sterling tracks, these fetching collections cover the best from each artist's prime. This time out, Nancy Wilson is in the spotlight with a stunning program that ranges from 1959-1968. She shines on both ballads and swingers here, and particularly impresses on such highlights as "The Good Life," "Angel Eyes," and "Back in Your Own Backyard." Helping along the way are some of the era's best jazz and pop arrangers, including Oliver Nelson, Billy May, Gerald Wilson, and Jimmy Jones. A perfect introduction to Nancy Wilson's extensive catalog.
