Nancy Wilson "A Touch Of Today" LP (1966)
Details: Used mono pressing of Nancy Wilson's 1966 LP "A Touch Of Today" on Capitol Records. Really lovely condition, NM album, and cover is near perfect, as well.
Description: The initial Billboard review from May 7, 1966, commented that "Miss Wilson's warmth, feeling and musical understanding highlight new dimensions of today's pop hits."
"In addition to recording music from the Great American Songbook, Nancy Wilson also kept up with current hits throughout the 1960s. In fact, Wilson's biggest hit in the 60s was a new pop tune called "(You Don't Know) How Glad I Am," which hit number 11 on the Billboard charts in 1964.
Nancy Wilson released several albums that explored newer songs, done in a more traditional style, including Today, Tomorrow and Forever, A Touch Of Today, Today - My Way, and Just For Now. These songs ranged from covers of songs recently performed by Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett to songs written by The Beatles and Stevie Wonder.
Nancy Wilson's final recording session in the decade was for the album But Beautiful, featuring a small jazz combo led by pianist Hank Jones. But Beautiful ended up being Wilson's last true jazz album; in the 1970s, her style evolved more towards R&B and soul.
While her jazz days were mostly behind her, she thankfully recorded so much material in the 1960s-over twenty albums-that it never feels as if we're at a loss for great Nancy Wilson jazz recordings." --Mark Chilla, Afterglow
