The music on The Swingin's Mutual!, a dozen selections featuring the George Shearing Quintet includes six that have vocals by a young Nancy Wilson, and has been reissued on CD by Capitol with five additional tracks. This was one of Wilson's most jazz-oriented dates (even if she was never a jazz singer) and is highlighted by her vocals on "The Nearness of You" and "The Things We Did Last Summer" along with instrumental versions of "Oh! Look at Me Now," "Blue Lou" and "Lullaby of Birdland." ---Scott Yanow, Rovi

I've Never Been to Me reunites Nancy Wilson with arranger Gene Page, Barry White's longtime partner in the Love Unlimited empire and her collaborator on 1974's underrated All in Love Is Fair. The second time around proves a disappointment, however, undermined by overbaked, pop-inspired production and lackluster material. Page and co-arranger Garry Sherman wrap Wilson in a gauzy, sleepily mellow sound that's more tepid than sophisticated, and the songs don't help -- covers like "All by Myself" are beneath the talents of all involved. The exception is the title cut: Wilson's rendition predates by a few months Charlene's smash hit version, and she avoids the over the top histrionics that composer Ron Miller's melodramatic lyrics so often seem to inspire, stripping away layers of camp to reveal the song's unflinching intimacy and emotional depth. ---Jason Ankeny, AllMusic Review

This fine album was sadly lost in the shuffle when it was released the same year as another Nancy Wilson album, The Swingin's Mutual!, her highly successful collaboration with the George Shearing Quintet. This is a shame, because Something Wonderful is one of Wilson's best albums and her tastiest with famed big-band arranger Billy May. Only 23 years old at the time, Wilson had a commanding blues- and soul-drenched jazz voice that was fully formed at the time of this recording, and unlike so many young singers, she was already committed to communicating lyrics rather than showing off how great her voice was. This is beautifully illustrated in the narrative gem "Guess Who I Saw Today," which justly went on to become one of Wilson's signature tunes. For his part, May keeps the accent here on swinging jazz but avoids the heavy brass and wild percussion that he became famous for. Instead, he opts for a subtler sound. May even throws a couple of small-group jazz and blues numbers into the mix and allows some superb jazz musicians (including Ben Webster, the legendary tenor saxophonist) to shine in the solo spotlight. Out of print for decades, Something Wonderful remains one of Nancy Wilson's most jazz-oriented sessions, and it's a welcome addition to Wilson's CD catalog. ---Nick Dedina, Rovi
