Album Review

Simone, Nina – “Four Women: The Nina Simone Philips Recordings ” – [Verve Music Group, The]

Cousin Mary   1/12/2009   CD, Jazz

4 CDs with 75 tracks from 7 LPs and 1 45-rpm recorded by NS from 1964 to 1966 for Philips records. Although some arrangements sound a little dated, many tracks are absolutely spectacular. No one could sing like NS, a voice with vibrato never equaled or imitated. NS also fine piano on most tracks.

Jazz: My favorite tracks, other notes:
CD1: 1-7, 16 CD2: 1,3,9(piano only), 13-21
CD3: 1, 2,3(piano interesting),10(vocal only),13,15.19-21
CD4: 5,6,9,12
Other genres: Tracks to start exploring:
Traditional: CD2:21 CD3:20 60???s: CD1:8 CD3:8
Black history: CD1:4,6,7 CD2:20 Soul: CD3:6 CD4:2
Blues: CD2:16-19 CD3:6,12 Children CD4:13
