Nina Simone’s first recording ever, the 1957 LP "Little Girl Blue", featured the singer backing herself on piano, with Jimmy Bond on bass and Albert “Tootie” Heath on drums. That was the exact personnel present during her first big break: the recording taped at her September 12, 1959 concert at New York’s Town Hall, issued that same year as Nina Simone at Town Hall. Presented here in its entirety, the album includes such classics as “Black Is the Color of My True Love’s Hair”, “The Other Woman”, and an extended reading of Gershwin’s “Summertime”.
