Nancy Wilson Dies at 81; Jazz Singer
Who Turned Songs Into Stories


Nancy Wilson in 2010. She performed American standards, jazz ballads and a variety
of other numbers with a heightened sense of a song’s narrative.

Nancy Wilson, whose skilled and flexible approach to singing provided a key bridge between the sophisticated jazz-pop vocalists of the 1950s and the powerhouse pop-soul singers of the 1960s and ’70s, died Thursday at her home in Pioneertown, Calif. She was 81.

Ms. Wilson’s death, which came after a long illness, was confirmed by her manager, Devra Hall Levy.

 


Nancy Wilson(1937-2018)

ナンシー・ウィルソンが81歳で13日(木)に亡くなった。今日は討ち入りの日でした。

彼女のステージを見に行ったのは何時のことだったか。

古い話で思い出せない。20年以上前だ。

顔の前でマイクを振りながら歌うのが癖だった。

そして、ぽちゃぽちゃと可愛い顔だった。R.I.P.
