A Dyke About Town: Nancy Wilson flawless

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Nancy Wilson
Mercy and Cuteness went to see Nancy Wilson at Jazz Alley last week. She and her combo of Lou Matthews (piano), John B. Williams (bass), and Roy McCurdy (drums) were flawless. Wilson has been performing for 55 years. She has gray hair that went well with her gray gown. Her experience shows in her comfort with every detail. Her face was expressive and her stylings apt in the wide range of songs she sang.

She opened with 'Moondance.' Nancy commented, 'I've been doing this longer than many of you are old.' She dedicated 'I Wish I'd Met You' to her wonderful husband of 37 years.

Nancy said she sang 'Take Love Easy' with the Dizzie Gillespie band. She added, 'My rhythm section will make you forget all that,' and she was right. The same thing was true of 'Don't Go to Strangers.'

'Day In and Day Out' was nice and smooth. Wilson said, 'I'm fortunate to have these gentlemen play with me.' Mercy and Cuteness agreed. Nancy has been playing with her drummer 29 years, and with her pianist for 23. As part of her introduction of the band, the bass player played a few notes of 'Blame It On My Youth.' Wilson said, 'That's not fair,' but she complied with the challenge by singing the song.

'Guess Who I Saw Today, My Dear' had an effective surprise. Nancy talked about the first time she heard Bonnie Raitt sing 'I Can't Make You Love Me' with tears in her eyes. Wilson's rendition almost put tears in Mercy's. She followed with 'How Long,' then joked she was going to do a fake bow because she didn't want to go to the work of walking offstage then back on for her encore. 'October' was a delicious ending.

Seattle Women's Chorus
Mercy and Cuteness are very much looking forward to Seattle Women's Chorus' (SWC) upcoming concert, 'We Are Family.' Performances are October 16 at 2 p.m. and October 17 at 7:30 p.m. They will be at Benaroya Hall, a first for SWC.

The concert will showcase the full range of family connections. Co-presented by Three Dollar Bill and the Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, 'We Are Family' will include segments of Rosie O'Donnell's HBO documentary film A Family is a Family is a Family, complemented by a delightful collection of choral music performed by our own wonderful women's chorus. Songs include Broadway selections by Sondheim and Rodgers and Hammerstein, original works, ballads by Holly Near, classic pieces like 'Everything's Possible,' and of course the rock number 'We Are Family.'

You can get your tickets at www.flyinghouse.org/swc/intro.asp.

Rainbow City Band
Mercy is also looking forward to the Rainbow City Band (RCB) concert. It will be at 8 p.m. on October 16 at Edmonds Performance Hall, which is supposed to be a good venue. They will also perform Sunday, November 7, at 3 p.m. at Broadway Performance Hall.

The title of the concert is Enchanted: An Evening of Disney Magic. It will be a time of princes, Dalmatians, beauties, and beasts as they celebrate 80 years of Disney music. You'll feel like a kid again as you hear 'When You Wish Upon a Star.' The band will leave you breathless with the sweeping music of 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice.' They will also explore the Disney of today with a suite of music from the movie Enchanted. You can explore your inner superhero with the music of The Incredibles (cape and matching boots optional.)

You can get tickets at www.rainbowcityband.com.
