Nancy Wilson: The Essence of Nancy Wilson (Sampler) For decades, Nancy Wilson has been combining the best of Sarah Vaughan and Jimmy Scott with her own passion and personality. Now her greatness can be absorbed and appreciated in one package. Opening with her signature duet with Cannonball Adderley, "Save Your Love for Me," this sampler whets the whistle on established favorites and previously unreleased tracks. These tunes will surely make the 2002 box set from which they have been taken popular and enduring.

From the bright belts of the contemporary "Sunshine" and the wise whispers of "Go Away and Find Yourself" to the late night questions of "When Did You leave Heaven" and the brilliantly-composed interrogation "Guess Who I Saw Today," Wilson touches on a heart full of emotions and moods with tender strength. If nothing else, the set will be worth a listen just to hear Wilson rhyme Albert Schweitzer and Sidney Poitier. There is much more, however, on this 12-track sampler.
