5.0 out of 5 stars Very accurate transcriptions of Nina Simone's greatest hits, 6 May 2008

This review is from: Very Best of Nina Simone (Piano/Vocal/Guitar Songbook) (Sheet music)
I wasn't sure what level the book was going to be when I ordered it, and I was afraid that like so many other songbooks, the piano parts would be 'dumbed down'.
However, I was very happy when I found that the piano parts were identical to the records, and were an interesting challenge. It also has full lyrics with the music (which my mum appreciated, although I wasn't too sure about her...vocal stylings) and guitar chords.
I would recommend this book to pianists of Grade 7 level and above, as although some of the the accompaniment is just chord patterns (as with any music), there are quite complex intricate sections in most songs, such as Sinnerman.
In short, an accurate and enjoyable songbook at great value!

Lots of detail in the piano arrangements including full into and middle 8. Not for beginners - some are quite advanced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!, 7 Sep 2012

This review is from: Very Best of Nina Simone (Piano/Vocal/Guitar Songbook) (Sheet music)
The book gives you great transcriptions of the way Nina Simone played her songs on piano. You always get 3 lines: piano on Bas clef, piano on treble clef and vocal melody on treble clef. Additionally some extra optional bass is written sometimes. This ain't no history of her life, no social analysis or whatever. You just get the right notes and voicings which gives you insight in the way she builds her solo's! This is the sort of stuff jazz-pianists need to learn to gain insight and experience in improvisational playing. The wonderfull tunes which come out of it are addictive!
