Nina Simone – Nina Simone ‘Sings the Blues’
Time to change it up, slow it down and all round adjust the pace. But we are still in the realm of fantastic rhythms, sublime vocals and a name we all know.
I must be honest I didn’t realise that this is nearly 60 years old now. Wow!
So relax with some soul Jazz and Blues.. Old style.
‘Sings the Blues’ (1967) is an album by singer/pianist/songwriter Nina Simone. This was her first album for RCA Records after previously recording for Colpix Records and Philips Records.
The album was also reissued in 2006 with bonus tracks, and re-packaged in 1991 by RCA/Novus as a 17-track compilation under the title ‘The Blues‘.
