RIP Nancy Wilson

One of the all-time great vocalists Nancy Wilson passed away on Thursday (Dec. 13). Although I never caught her live, when she appeared at Stockton's Club Fiesta in June 1973 someone recorded it and, thanks to Adrian Tilbrook who played drums on the gig, I was able to listen to her performance - how I wish I'd been adventurous enough to go to Stockton back then! I'm sure Adrian recalled his memories of the gig in these pages but I can't find them!
As I remember, she castigated a section of the audience for being less than attentive perhaps Adrian will elaborate further?
A more conventional recording was the album she did with Cannonball Adderley - one of my favourite vocal recordings.
A great singer sadly missed.
Nancy Wilson was 81.
Lance.

I saw this news too. Another one joining that celestial choir of angels ...... if you can believe that! She had a sublime voice - on 31 December, I always want to hear her singing 'What Are You Doing New Years Eve?'

I love this number, only performed by the greats. We of a certain age are so fortunate to know & love songs of this calibre. RIP lovely lady
