Although Nina Simone's years at RCA have their passionate devotees, most fans believe her mid-'60s tenure at Philips was the pinnacle of her career. Indeed, her first album for the label, 1964's still-startling NINA SIMONE IN CONCERT, is probably Simone's single finest album of all time, introducing such masterpieces as her chilling reinterpretation of Kurt Weill's "Pirate Jenny" and the anti-segregation broadside "Mississippi Goddam," which she delivers with absolutely brutal humor. The six studio albums that followed are all included in full, and each of them continues Simone's no-boundaries musical worldview (one album was called BROADWAY-BLUES-BALLADS, and she cut the occasional pop song, like her dramatic remake of the Animals' "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood"), her increasingly socio-political choices of material, and above all, her absolute mastery of the jazz vocal form. Beautifully packaged and extensively annotated, this four-disc set is a perfect overview of some of the '60s' finest and most uncompromising vocal jazz.
Artist Overview
Nina Simone was a great pianist, a riveting vocalist, and an uncompromising personality. Her sociopolitical consciousness and eclecticism set her apart from the pack. Her interpretations of soul, jazz, blues, and standards are both striking and unique; not for nothing do her fans refer to her as "the Goddess." She established her jazz credentials with an emotive interpretation of George Gershwin 's 'I Loves You Porgy' in 1959. Her influential '60s work included "Forbidden Fruit" and "I Put A Spell On You." One of her singles, "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," later became a worldwide hit for the Animals. In later years, she recorded less frequently, but in 1987, while in self-imposed exile in France, she had a fluke hit after her '50s version of "My Baby Just Cares For Me," was resurrected in a TV commercial. Simone died in 2003 at her home in France at age 70.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (6/26/03, p.82) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Complex music in the key of bittersweet..."
JazzTimes (8/03, p.131) - "...She recorded what she wanted, how she wanted, when she wanted....She was simultaneously jazz, folk, blues and gospel. The lines crossed and blurred....As a storyteller, she rivaled Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan..."
