Nina Simone was multi-faceted, both as an artist and on a personal level, and she spent her whole career drawing from such a wide variety of influences that it was always impossible to pigeon-hole her. She drew from the classical music world, from folk roots, from blues, from jazz and from the writers of the Great American Songbook, and delivered all of her material in her own unique style. This collection of songs is drawn from the early years of her releases and very much reflects her diversity of musical choices. Her work is amongst the very best and this album is a taster of her immense talent
