Editor's NoteWith a justified reputation as one of the greatest jazz singers of all time, Nina Simone has lit up the music world with some superlative performances over the years. This footage is culled from shows in 1961 and 1962, and sees Simone tackling a number of songs alone at the piano. Among them are "I Loves You," "For All We Know," "Sunday In Savannah," and many others.
