Product Description

Has Nancy Wilson ever made a public move in her 40-plus-year career that wasn't tasteful? Aside from a couple of small-print notices, purchasers would never know that Wilson intends to donate her royalties from her first full- length Christmas disc to the Pittsburgh-based Manchester Craftsmen's Guild, an arts and education center for lower-income residents. Christmas finds Wilson moving between quietly felt moods with astute shifts in arrangement size; her trio, the Dizzy Gillespie alumni orchestra, and a chamber group are among the varied settings. As a choice for a houseful of family on Christmas Eve, this could hardly be better. A seemingly unpromising match between Wilson and the supremely fussy quartet New York Voices on "Carol of the Bells" ends up as one of the album's most sustained performances. --Rickey Wright

Nancy departed from the shackels of Sony records and what did she do first? She went into the studio of Telarc Jazz and produced one of the finest Christmas albums I've heard. The names of guests on this album reads almost like a who's who in the world of jazz and when you thought it wasn't to get better, she donates all the profits from this album to charity. Nancy is a class act and that class is evident on all the tracks contained here in. For me a stand out track is the Broadway inspired arrangement of "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow." Nancy sounds like she had a great time recording this album and the various arrangements ranging from Big Band to Trio all flow seamlessly. Nancy is a song stylist, her interpretations sometimes don't follow the standards set by other artists performing and producing traditional Christmas albums so do not expect mundane versions of these carols, they belong to Nancy.

I love this Cd, Nancy's vocal stylings and phrasings are so unique. The songs make me feel good and put me in a sophisticated mood. I recommned this Cd for all jazz enthusists. I will hate to store it away after Christmas. Add it to your Holiday collection and you will be glad you did.

Joy To The World Dec 10 2001
By Harry N. Cohen - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Stunning,beautiful,tasteful,exquisite are the adjectives that come to mind when listening to A Nancy Wilson Christmas. Yet, these words seem inadequate for the joyous musical celebration Nancy offers. This is Nancy's finest album since Lady With A Song in 1989. Her voice has gotten a bit deper, but this brings out a richness in her performance that is quite appropriate for the material.All of the arrangements are sublime, whether combo or big band. The wedding of Nancy's voice with that of the New York Voices is an inspired match.The usual suspects are here...Let It Snow, White Christmas, Christmas Song, and all are delightful. However it is the more religious songs that are the standouts. Sweet Little Jesus Boy and O Holy Night shine. Never has Nancy sung with as much feeling as on her magnificent interpretation of All Through the Night.After the horrors of the last few months, this cd is a comfort and inspiration. The fact that Nancy is donating 100% of her income from this album, only adds to the true holiday spirit evoked by this stellar cd. If this cd does not inspire you, move you and bring you tidings of comfort and joy, then BAH HUMBUG to you. To Miss Nancy Wilson I can only say thank you.

A Nancy Wilson Christmas Indeed Nov. 10 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have waited years for Nancy to do a Christmas album. I was so excited to discover this new CD. The last of the Jazz Divas has out done herself. It is jazz at its finest. This will certainly make my season bright. I hope you are working on your next CD, Nancy!

"Serve" this one along with the Eggnog Nov. 23 2001
By Reginald D. Garrard - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The halls will surely be "decked" with Wilson's trademark jazzy interpretations of familiar holiday songs. The artist, backed by a bevy of talented musicians, such as The Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All-Star Big Band and Herbie Mann, is wonderful as she takes on such standards as "White Christmas," "Carol of the Bells," and "Angels We Have Heard on High."
However, it is her versions of "Christmas Time is Here" from "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and the Nat King Cole classic "The Christmas Song" that show Wilson at her most captivating and evocative. These are the tunes that bring the spirit of the season alive.
No one does it better than Nancy.

If you know Nancy . . . Dec 10 2001
By John Borrelli - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
you already own this. Let It Snow! and Silver Bells are outstanding. This recording finds Nancy jazzier than she's been lately, and that's not a bad thing. Her fellow artists surround her with fine arrangements, great vocals, plenty of heart and soul. And Nancy's giving all the money away, to a cause she really believes in. How's that for Christmas spirit!

"A Swingin'Jazzy Xmas from Nancy" Oct. 9 2001
By Carlotta Tillman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I just received the new Xmas C.D. "A Nancy Wilson Christmas". This is a MUST BUY to be included in your Xmas collection. You will not be disapponted. As always, Nancy adds on her own touch to each track. I am glad she decided to make a Xmas C.D. This is a GREAT C.D!!. Yes, she is a "stylist". I will wait patiently for her next C.D.
