Nina Simone was born Eunice Wayman on February 21st 1933, in Tryon, South Carolina. She is, for many, the ultimate jazz/blues diva. Few know however, that Ms. Simone holds a doctorate in music, yet was once refused admission to the legendary Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, an event that has forever marked her life. An intense live performer, Nina Simone's shows are legendary, ... Read more in Amazon's Nina Simone Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The blues with bite 19 May 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always liked Nina Simone but have never before bought one of her albums. I've been put off by the amount of compilations and her varied output, both in quality and style. This one, however, is right on the button. I think anyone who enjoys the blues will enjoy this album. She sings with real sassiness, sometimes sexy, sometimes angry and bitter as in Backlash Blues which is a fantastic rant against racism. A real protest sing. 'You give me second class houses and second class schools, do you think that all coloured folk are just second class fools?'. As it says on the back of the sleeve, 'Nina Simone-with heart at all times. A great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 22 April 2010
By X. Ast
Format:Audio CD
I love blues music and Nina Simone's fantastic voice. The combination of the two is beautiful. She plays the piano very well, too.

The opening track, "Do I move you" sets the mood immediately and is rightly given a second version towards the end of the album. If you think that a harmonica is a must for "proper" blues, you won't be disappointed by this album either. The blues tracks ("In the dark", "Mr. Backlash", "I want a little sugar in my bowl", "Since I fell for you", and the wonderful "Blues for mama") are the best in this album, though some of them veer towards jazz more than blues . There are also some political statements, as can be expected from the feisty Ms. Simone.

The style keeps shifting, though. Some tracks are more pop than blues (e.g., "Day and night"), others lean towards soul or even gospel ("Real,real", "Whatever I am" and an unusual version of "House of the rising sun"), and there is even a jazz standard of sorts (a beautiful rendition of "My man's gone now").

Regardless of style, all tracks benefit from Simone's effortless voice and the good musical backing.

A lovely album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nina Simons sings the blues 9 July 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
What more can I add to the hugely deserved accolades. Many of today's musicians, bands, singers, owe so much to this lady. She's up there with the greats - Sarah Vaughan and Ella Firzgerald and is a blend of their jazz feel and the vocal timbre of Della Reese. If this is not in your collection I urge you to add it as soon as possible - buy two copies for when you wear the first one out! You will...
I bought my second copy at a bargain price from Amazon.
