Arranger: Billy May.
Nancy Wilson was only 23 years old when this superb album was recorded, yet her soulful, distinctive alto voice sounds as seasoned and sensitive to nuance as a singer twice her age. Overshadowed by the simultaneous release of THE SWINGIN'S MUTUAL (one of Wilson's most popular jazz recordings), and overlooked in her subsequent move to the pop and R&B markets, SOMETHING WONDERFUL is a quintessential slice of Wilson's early--and arguably most significant--work.
There is a laid-back, subtle swing to the orchestral work here (courtesy of celebrated big-band arranger Billy May), and Wilson's readings of the tunes are never overpowered by bombastic playing. Even better is the inclusion of several small-ensemble cuts--like the gently grooving "I Wish You Love," and the heartbreaking story-song "Guess Who I Saw Today"--which feature Ben Webster on tenor and Jack Marshall on guitar. Through all of this, of course, Wilson's charming, seemingly off-handed delivery and blues-steeped timbre make each tune float and shimmy with grace.
