Nina Simone Nina Simone Sings Duke Ellington on 180g Import LP

Original Album & 3 Bonus Tracks!

Few artists in the music profession are as unclassifiable as Nina Simone. During her long career she tackled material from a variety of styles, garnering an audience that included soul devotees, folk followers, R&B lovers and even jazz buffs. 1962's Nina Simone Sings Duke Ellington helped consolidate her reputation as a singer/musician to be contended with and represents the first of two albums she recorded devoted to the work of one supremely talented individual - the other being Billie Holiday.

Given the status of the Duke's tunes, often allied to definitive performances, the decision to include a smattering of lesser-known melodies was probably a wise one. "Do Nothin' Till You Hear from Me," "I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good," "Solitude" and "It Don't Mean A Thing" had long been favorites Ellington circles, but lesser lights like "The Gal From Joe's," "Merry Mending" and "You Better Know It," really allowed Nina the chance to put her own stamp on them. Given its dedication to the compositions of one man, Nina Simone Sings Duke Ellington may be viewed as a curio - but it is one never to be ignored.
