Editorial Reviews

If one could have ever filed Nina neatly under "jazz," it would have been when she recorded these 1959-63 cuts. As always, she injects loads of personality into Willow Weep for Me; Forbidden Fruit; Work Song; Fine and Mellow; Solitude; I Loves You, Porgy , and 13 more!

Good selection from this early period. Some lush orchestration but that works well with Nina too. Every style does.
Some of her most famous songs are on this cd. It was a prolific period for her in which she consolidated her hard to catergorize Blues/Jazz style.

Thought this might have the definitive versions of these songs, but they were not. Live and learn...never buy unless you can listen to the samples of each song and be sure it's what you want!

Had this CD -- liked it quite much and purchased another copy as gift for a friend -- who also had a very positive reaction. CD is excellent condition.
