Plus the bonus track: "My Baby Just Cares For Me" (alternate take).
This outstanding release features Nina Simone's complete New York, 1957 trio session with Jimmy Bond on bass, Albert "Tootie" Heath on drums and Simone accompanying herself on piano.
This edition marks the first time that all fifteen of these tracks (including the extended alternate take of "My Baby Just Cares For Me") are available on one CD.
Of the 82 studio sessions and live shows that make up Simone's discography, this date marks her very first recording.
To say that her studio debut was a success would be a terrible understatement. At 25 years old, Simone's performance boasted all the passion and ebullience of youth, and all the skill and grace of a seasoned veteran.
There are many who consider this session Simone's finest recording.
