GUESS WHO I SAW TODAY: THE MUSICAL LEGACY OF NANCY WILSON
The Musical Legacy of Legendary Song Stylist Nancy Wilson
Come away with us as we explore the career of one of the most diverse vocalists of the twentieth century.
Presented by Georg Hill, Nancy Wilson's longtime, trusted employee, this oral biography explores the multifaceted Wilson as never before.
With more than seventy albums, three Grammy® Awards, an Emmy®, and the NEA Jazz Master Award, Wilson's career is one of storybook proportions.
Nancy Wilson bridged the gap between the Golden Era of Music to the sounds that can be heard today in Jazz, Pop, and Rhythm &Blues . Wilson has been the consummate master of the American Songbook. Her interpretations of Ellington, Gershwin, Cahn, and Mercer have been cemented in the annals of American culture and beyond.
Wilson was never one to be pigeonholed to one genre of music. She identified herself as a song stylist, which in her words, allowed her to sing what she wanted to sing. Guess Who I Saw Today describes not only this song stylist's musical career, but her commitment to the civil rights movement of the 1960's while also addressing Wilson's association with many of the major singers of her time and before — from Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughn and Dinah Washington — and many more.
