Biography

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.

If you're checking this out- Good! You've got taste, obviously, or you wouldn't be here. Pick Up a used copy of this little sweetheart- you won't be let down!

For me, the original record, "Jazz As Played In An Exclusive Side Street Club" (US, 1958, BETHLEHEM BCP 6028), was one of those vinyl finds that diggers hope for but RARELY ever get. After a couple hours of grimy fingered flipping through some stacks of old Gospel records in this rundown flea-market in Hinton, WV- I unearthed the title above. Old as hell and grimy, some rain damage- but still... made my week!

That record consisted of the following tracks: "Mood Indigo," "Don't Smoke In Bed," "He Needs Me," "Little Girl Blue," "Love Me Or Leave Me," "My Baby Just Cares For Me," Good Bait" (a nice long tempestuous instrumental), "Plain Gold Ring," "You'll Never Walk Alone" (another great instrumental), "I Loves You Porgy," and "Central Park Blues" (a nice pensive instrumental). The versions of I loves you Porgy was the tune that got her signed. Little Girl Blue gets her standard 'Good King Wenceslaws' treatment- that fusion blew me away the first time I heard it! He Needs Me is a sweet sad, poignant short little tune!

Soooooooo... this CD is the Import version of that first album by Nina, plus the second (which was "Nina Simone And Her Friends" (US, 1959, BETHLEHEM BCP 6041: only four tracks: "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands," "I Loves You Porgy" (reprise from the previous album), "For All We Know," and another instrumental- "African Mailman.")). The sound is cleaned up a little. No remastering but the sound was pretty good to begin with. Whoever NEON is- they added four pretty rollicking live tracks at the end to flesh this out. The live tracks are B+, A- quality.

Nina Simone has been called the high priestess of soul, but the Nina Simone on this album should be called the high priestess of jazz piano. Her playing here is as good as that of any jazz pianist ever. "My Baby Just Cares for Me," "Mood Indigo," and "Love Me or Leave Me" are among the highlights. Simone's unique style blends elements of classical music (she studied piano at Julliard) and jazz, to stunning effect. This is a brilliant and powerful album.

First of all, any quality release of 'Little Girl Blue' is far-and-away a five-star album. Unfortunately, Amazon has a nasty habit of cross-posting reviews purely on the basis of artist and title name alone. As such, music that has been licensed, sub-licensed, fallen in and out of public domain, and is just generally widely available tends to show up in all sorts of different conundra-defibrulations. In most cases, the cover art alone is enough to weed out the pretenders.

This release from Neon does contain 'versions' of the 14 tracks recorded by Bethlehem records... 11 of which appeared on the original album. The signature tune 'My Baby Just Cares for Me' appears in an extended version, while the amazing 'Central Park Blues' is totally massacred at less than half of its original running time. The track order is totally inexplicable and bears no resemblance to official releases. The four bonus live tracks simply don't fit. An inferior version of Simone's seminal 'Young, Gifted and Black' is the only item of marginal interest.

If budget is the issue, the Neon release might suffice. For those wanting the real deal, there is a version getting around with the original cover art, the original 11-track listing in order, plus three bonus tracks culminating in the fabulous Afro-jazz instrumental 'African Mailman'. With great sound quality, it is the one that really delivers.
