Nina?s Blues 1959-1962
Format: COMPACT DISC
Simone, Nina; Schackman, Al; Hamilton, Bobby; White, Chris
Her deep voice and the funky sophistication of her piano have made Nina Simone a timeless icon of American music. Her extreme sensitivity as a militant artist in the struggle for civil rights was matched only by her unrivalled talent as a vocalist and instrumentalist: nobody could come close to her when she infused jazz with soul, or classical music with rhythm and blues. Here Olivier Julien has brought together a complete set of Nina Simone’s effervescent recordings from her early period, featuring a great number of her hits including the emblematic “My Baby just Cares for Me”.
