Partnerships that occur in the recording studio rarely get more propitiously productive than the meeting of vocalist Nancy Wilson and the soulful hard bop unit of saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. The hand-in-glove fit between singer and band is nowhere more in evidence than on the hit "Save Your Love for Me" -- which remains a signature song for Wilson. An intimate duet between Wilson and pianist Joe Zawinul (later a cofounder of Weather Report) on the standard "The Masquerade is Over" demonstrates Wilson's subtle artistry and authentic feel for jazz singing. Yet as commanding as her contributions are, this is truly a shared masterpiece. A number of tracks feature Adderley's whip-smart band -- with its propulsive team of bassist Sam Jones and drummer Louis Hayes -- sans singer. On performances like the classic "Unit 7," this model hard bop quintet earns its exalted reputation and then some.

This is a wonderful album, one of my favorites. Nancy is very young in this record, and has the tightness in the voice that is a good contrast with the smoothness of the sax. No duds on the album, a must have.
