Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Nancy Sue Wilson - diva best known for her standards recordings.
2) Nancy Lamoureaux Wilson - singer, songwriter, and guitarist, and member of the group Heart.

1) Nancy Sue Wilson (born February 20, 1937, in Chillicothe, OH, United States) is a diva famous for recording American standards in the .

She was among contemporary music’s most stylish and sultry vocalists; while often crossing over into the pop and R&B markets — and even hosting her own television variety program — she remained best known as a jazz performer, renowned for her work alongside figures including Cannonball Adderley and George Shearing. Wilson first attracted notice performing the club circuit in nearby Columbus; she quickly earned a growing reputation among jazz players and fans, and she was recording regularly by the late ’50s, eventually signing to Capitol and issuing LPs including 1959’s Like in Love and Nancy Wilson with Billy May’s Orchestra. Her dates with Shearing, including 1960’s The Swingin’s Mutual, solidified her standing as a talent on the rise, and her subsequent work with Adderley — arguably her finest recordings — further cemented her growing fame and reputation.

    All you bitches giving out about Jazz Nancy need to actually listen to her. Shes not just another Jazz singer. Think Little Eva meets Shirley Bassey and Billie Holiday and they have a 3 way sex orgy and give birth to a jazz singer.... That’s Nancy Wilson, mother fuckers...

    the two co-exist in real life, they can do so here, too. Both have done great works. Take note that 'Elevator Beat' (guitarist) is the top track for this profile & respect

    If you want this page for Nancy Wilson the jazz singer, please click on the pictures and vote for hers.

    Please, if you have any respect, vote UP the images of Nancy Wilson, sublime jazz singer. (YOUR VOTES ARE THE ONLY THING deciding which artist dominates the page. Complaints to LastFM don't work. No one is coming to fix this. All that matters are the votes on the artists' images.)

    I guess this is a conflict of names. Nancy Wilson is a 60s smooth jazz singer. But it has another Nancy Wilson too, Cameron Crow ex-wife, who also composed i hundred of scores for his movies. This page is confuse. ;]

    Huge discography but approach with caution: vocal mannerisms and bags of tricks can be deadly in large doses.
