Finally started paying attention to Nina Simone after watching Liv Perry dancing to this song with Carlo in that movie—oh you know the one. For awhile it was the first song on my Winamp playlist (after RP of course) and every now and then when my connection dropped I'd of a sudden be listening to it thinking that I was still listening to RP. Always knew it belonged here but surprisingly it's the first time I've actually heard it on RP. Oh yeah, that movie was Stealing Beauty—not particularly memorable (to me) except that it led to a greater appreciation for more of Nina's music.

Reminds me a bit of a slightly subdued and refined Nellie Lutcher. I'd LOVE to hear some Nellie Lutcher here on RP. Maybe I should try and upload some and see what happens. This is really great!

First heard this when I saw the Aardman cartoon. Been hooked on Nina ever since... R.I.P. you feisty woman.

That would be his COVER of Louis Prima's medley of "Just a Gigolo" and "I Ain't Got Nobody." Just sayin' . . .
Gotta love that jump blues vibe!
Would really really love to hear that original medley after this!
Hell, I'd even settle for DLR's silly cover. But, only if we can't get some Prima!

Sounds great, Love It, but watching videos of Nina is underwhelming . . .

Yes, dear, I'll fix the dishwasher in a minute. I'm thinking right now...

I was not enjoying this about the first minute or so, but then, it grabbed me. Damn, I love that piano playing!

This lady knew how to sing, eh?
Extra eclectic afternoon, and terribly appreciated! Thanks, Bill!

Nina Simone defines sexy and sultry. Ahhh!

She never sang a song the same twice. She added variations, pauses, drawls. She was so great! I have more of her CD's than any other artist.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... This, this is the sound of perfection.
Tis. Tis the way to play the piano, keep you hanging on the lyrics.

Blasphemy is cool. Jazz knows blasphemy.

ze woonde bij ons in de buurt, in Nijmegen, dat was wel cool om haar bij de supermarkt tegen te komen ;-)
