Stephen Holden on Mary Wilson

The NYTimes reviews the ex-Supreme, now appearing at Feinstein’s: “Other parts of the show suggested that Ms. Wilson would really like to get away from all that history to be a grander, more grown-up pop diva. The first third of her show was devoted to standards, including “Here’s to Life,” “Smile,” “Body and Soul” and “I Remember You,” taken slowly and given a heavy emotional weight. That weight was largely in the songs’ pacing since Ms. Wilson, flexing her sizable voice with its rough Tina Turner-like edges, didn’t explore the lyrics. It was enough just to supply an attitude of gravity.”
