MUST HEAR

Mixing pop, jazz and soul, Normandie Wilson is a rare talent. Taking a page from Bacharach and other piano-based tunesmiths with a jazzy edge, Wilson has penned a batch of songs that come across like lost classics or the perfect soundtrack to a “Mad Men” episode. She has a new album imminent, Geography and Other Problems, and will be appearing on Sundays, Sept. 1 and 8 at Amaya, where she’ll concentrate on standards. However, music lovers should check out her most recent releases, including an album of instrumentals, Mod Piano, Vol. 1, but especially At The Heart of Staying In Love. Full of romantic tunes such as “Nobody Loves You Like I Do,” which wonderfully showcases her sound, Wilson’s lyric and melody combinations tug at the heartstrings.
