When rock & roll and Motown ruled the airwaves in the 1960s, jazz singer Nancy Wilson was nonetheless able to maintain her popularity. Wilson's bright but cozy delivery is equally effective on uptempo swingers, mellow ballads, and pop and R&B numbers. A live set recorded in 1965, SHOW finds Wilson accompanied by a large band and confidently presiding over a program of jazz and pop standards such as "Don't Talk, Just Sing" and "I'm Beginning To See The Light."
