Guess Who I Saw Today: Nancy Wilson Sings Songs of Lost Love
by Nancy Wilson
Released: Aug 2005
Label: Blue Note Records
Like all great jazz vocalists, Nancy Wilson pays attention to lyrics and paints compelling narratives, especially on torch songs. This collection is bookended by two of her most famous domestic ballads the title track and "You Can Have Him," both of which show her clear-eyed control and devastating use of dynamics to show the anguish under a calm exterior.
