    What a beautiful voice. Her recordings with Cannonball Adderly are unequaled.
    Sing on Nancy!

    Always been one of my favorites. Have most of her recordings. Sorry to hear she is gone.


    Never have heard of that Nancy Wilson, or Heart for that matter.

    Here's why you should check their music out.

    That's the other Nancy Wilson doing that flatpicking intro, she's a bad ass guitarist.

    Please be Classy, smart and edit your thread title. More folks know the Heart Nancy Wilson than this gal RIP.

    If you want to know how to edit your thread title, just ask.

    Meh. My first thought was "which one?" and that was answered with one click. I think it's fine as is.

    Intro was good, but after that...just awful sounding.

    That is hard to believe. Nancy Wilson and Ella were two of the best female vocalists of the 20th century.

    I had never even heard of the one from Heart (or the band).

    Nancy Wilson was a giant of female Jazz singers. Close to Ella and Sarah Vaughn. She was great. RIP Nancy Wilson.

    I absolutely love Nancy's singing. a true lyric interpreter, as well as technically brilliant.

    Nancy Wilson had great vocal chops and was a beautiful Lady.
    She was the epitome of Class.
