I am really enjoying the interview segments with Nancy Wilson, but I have not seen a mention of my all-time favorite recording by her--"Yesterday's Love Songs, Today's Blues" where she was backed by the arrangements of Gerald Wilson. About half the tracks are done with Gerald's own big band and the ballads feature a string orchestra. The big band cuts are especially impressive as Teddy Edwards, Harold Land, Carmell Jones, Jack Wilson and Joe Pass are featured soloists. Gerald's roaring arrangement of "Satin Doll" is the highlight for me.
