"1960 saw the beginnings of a change in her music, a new confidence and militancy as Nina, like Abbey Lincoln, Betty Carter and other female jazz singers of the time, abandoned the gowned and earringed supperclub image and started to speak out as militant performers. The Oscar Brown songs on Forbidden Fruit keep the anger protected by a layer of pawky humour. With Forbidden Fruit, Simone became one of the defining voices of the 1960s.” PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“On Forbidden Fruit Simone is already a breathtaking performer and a formidable pianist. On the songs ‘No Good Man’, ‘I Love to Love’, and ‘Where Can I Go Without You’, she draws an overwhelming panorama of all the nuances of love and passion, offering unforgettable interpretations that have lost none of their emotional strengt” - JAZZ MAGAZINE
