SoulTracks Lost Gem: The Crusaders and Nancy Wilson know "The Way It Goes"

When tracing the evolution of female singers from Sarah Vaughn, Dinah Washington and the great jazz vocalists of the 40s and 50s to the modern jazz and soul stylists of artists such as Anita Baker and Diana Krall, all roads run through the late, great Nancy Wilson.  Physically beautiful and a uniquely gifted song stylist able to interpret jazz, soul and pop, Wilson stands among the greatest performers of the past fifty years. Click Here for the full biography of Nancy Wilson.

And while many know Ms. Wilson for her solo hits, fewer may remember a delicious 1986 collaboration with the Crusaders on the song "The Way It Goes."  It was a terrific outing for both acts and is a true Lost Gem. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
