The Great American Songbook (Box Set)
by Nancy Wilson
Released: Aug 2005
Label: Blue Note Records
This two-disc set collects 44 standards that were written for Broadway and Hollywood along with a couple of tunes that started as jazz numbers thrown in for good measure. There's no faulting any of the work of the young, strikingly beautiful Nancy Wilson or her various all-star ensembles (led by everyone from Cannonball Adderly and Hank Jones to Billy May, and Oliver Nelson).
