The album rose to No. 30 on the Billboard Top LPs chart. Wilson considered her vocals on the album "as a sort of easy-going third horn" (Wilson quoted in the liner notes). All tracks were recorded in New York City, those with Wilson on June 27 and 29, 1961, and the instrumental tracks on August 23 and 24, 1961.
Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderley. Nancy Wilson, Cannonball Adderley. The Swingin's Mutual! George Shearing, Nancy Wilson, George Shearing Quintet. 2019 Classics Album Digitally Remastered.
An excellent collaboration of Nancy Wilson's voice with Cannonball Adderley's alto sax from the early '60s. While this 1961 recording was the first time Wilson was with Adderley in the studio, it was not the first time they had worked together. After singing with Rusty Bryant's band, Wilson had worked with Adderley in Columbus, Ohio. It was there that Adderley encouraged her to go to . to do some recording, eventually leading to this session. Not entirely a vocal album, five of the 12 cuts are instrumentals

With Cannonball Adderley & George Shearing (Bonus Track Version). This album has some of the best work that Nancy Wilson has ever done with the added bonus of being backed by Cannonball Adderly and George Shearing. I am very happy with the sound quality of the album as well. 2 people found this helpful.
