Nina Simone recorded seven albums for the Philips label between 1964 and 1966. It was the period in her career in which her reputation was cemented as a world-class artist, and one in which she gained fame for her contributions to the civil rights movement as well. Despite the fact that she recorded great albums both before and after her years with Philips (most notably with RCA), her Philips period is easily her most enigmatic. Among her Philips recordings are her live label debut and six studio recordings featuring wildly varying instrumentation, arrangements, and contents. The box contains all seven LPs on four CDs, and includes one bonus track.

A dozen years have passed since Nina Simone left us, yet it’s taken until now for a substantial tribute album to emerge. Making up for lost time, this 10-track import pays superlative homage to the singularly vibrant Simone in all her musical hues. Welcomingly, Round Nina is more a voyage of discovery than an exercise in backwards glancing. Recorded in Paris, in settings ranging from sparse to orchestral, the collection features an international array of vocalists, many of whom will be revelations to most Stateside listeners.

Nina Simone is accompanied on this classic 1967 release by a large orchestra, arranged and led by Hal Mooney. Neither strictly jazz nor soul, the material here is eclectic as Simone interprets these covers in her inimitable style. The album also includes two original songs, the sparse and intimate Come Ye featuring Simone accompanied by nothing but percussion and the centerpiece track, Take Me To The Water.
Words and Songs of Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, and Nina Simone: Sound Motion, Blues Spirit, and African Memory

For the past eight years, I have been engaged in the study of African culture,
primarily African dance, African American music, and African aesthetics. Music can be a cultural form of expression that unifies, even arouses, large numbers of people. This is certainly true for African music as it is manifested in African American songs and sounds. In this study, I explore selected song performances of Bessie Smith (1894–1937), Billie Holiday (1915–1959), and Nina Simone (1933–2003) through the prism of African aesthetics.

Nina Simone was one of the most gifted vocalists of her generation, and also one of the most eclectic. Simone was a singer, pianist, and songwriter who bent genres to her will rather than allowing herself to be confined by their boundaries; her work swung back and forth between jazz, blues, soul, classical, R&B, pop, gospel, and world music, with passion, emotional honesty, and a strong grasp of technique as the constants of her musical career. Nina Simone was born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in Tryon, North Carolina on February 21, 1933. Her mother, Mary Kate Waymon, was a Methodist minister, and her father, John Divine Waymon…

The two albums enclosed in At Town Hall/The Amazing Nina Simone bookend the remarkable summer of 1959 in the career of Nina Simone, when she recorded a studio session, The Amazing Nina Simone, in May, and in September appeared At Town Hall in a superlative performance that was recorded and soon issued. Just 26, Simone displayed great assurance, especially on the live date, casting off the cloak of the vocal jazz/standards singer and performing with her own trio featuring her lively piano. The studio date features an orchestra, but it too finds her early on in her recording career stamping her voice on standards "Willow Weep for Me" and "Blue Prelude".
