Description
Although Nina Simone was a consummate artist who made every song her own, she is especially remembered for her unforgettable, signature versions of "I Loves You, Porgy," "My Baby Just Cares for Me," "Love Me or Leave Me," and "Wild Is the Wind." This 20-track compilation also includes memorable renditions of "For All We Know," "Bye Bye Blackbird," "Mood Indigo," "I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)," "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," "The Twelfth of Never," "Solitude," "Work Song," "Central Park Blues," "Gin House Blues," and "You'll Never Walk Alone."

"As a musician, a singer and a composer, she became not just the voice of Black America but a huge star in Europe — and one of the most powerful live performers in the history of popular music. She was just 24 when 'I Loves You, Porgy' made her name and then 30 years later, 'My Baby Just Cares for Me,' from the very same album, would be a major hit all over again. This brought a new audience, a flood of re-issues, a sense of rediscovery and a reputation confirmed. Just don't refer to any of it as jazz — 'a white term used to define black people' she told me — her own preference being 'black classical music'."—John Kelly, Daily Mail, London
