Product Description

Product Description

Nancy Wilson Christmas

Amazon.ca

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

CONTENT:

“Nancy Wilson Christmas”, released by Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild (MCG Jazz) label in 2001, contains 13 songs. I have compiled a detailed song listing (including album label & number, year of release):

LP “NANCY WILSON CHRISTMAS” (MCG Jazz 1008)(2001):
01 Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!*with Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Star Big Band
02 Sweet Little Jesus Boy*with New York Voices
03 White Christmas
04 Silver Bells!*with Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Star Big Band
05 What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?*original single version first released in 1963
06 All Through The Night
07 O Christmas Tree

09 Carol of the Bells*with New York Voices
10 God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen!*with Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Star Big Band
11 Christmas Time Is Here
12 Angels We Have Heard On High
13 The Christmas Song

POSITIVE POINTS:

1 With the release of over 70 albums, I was slightly surprised to find that this set was the first complete Christmas album that Nancy Wilson has recorded – truly better late than never! She was surrounded by her friends like Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All Star Big Band, New York Voices, Marty Ashby on guitar, Jay Ashby as arranger, Herbie Mann on flute, just to name a few.
2 The sound is very well remastered. Nancy was in top form. All the instruments are clearly defined.
3 There is a fold-out 8 page booklet, with a personal essay by Nancy Wilson, plus an introduction to the charity work by MCG.

NEGATIVE POINT:

None

FINAL THOUGHTS:

As noted above, this set was the first Christmas CD by Nancy Wilson, her 52nd domestic release. The entire set is totally enjoyable, and is recommended to all Nancy Wilson fans.

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.
