4 stars out of 5 - "...Complex music in the key of bittersweet..."
JazzTimes - 8/03, p.131
"...She recorded what she wanted, how she wanted, when she wanted....She was simultaneously jazz, folk, blues and gospel. The lines crossed and blurred....As a storyteller, she rivaled Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan..."

Although Nina Simone's years at RCA have their passionate devotees, most fans believe her mid-'60s tenure at Philips was the pinnacle of her career. Indeed, her first album for the label, 1964's still-startling NINA SIMONE IN CONCERT, is probably Simone's single finest album of all time, introducing such masterpieces as her chilling reinterpretation of Kurt Weill's "Pirate Jenny" and the anti-segregation broadside "Mississippi Goddam," which she delivers with absolutely brutal humor. The six studio albums that followed are all included in full, and each of them continues Simone's no-boundaries musical worldview (one album was called BROADWAY-BLUES-BALLADS, and she cut the occasional pop song, like her dramatic remake of the Animals' "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood"), her increasingly socio-political choices of material, and above all, her absolute mastery of the jazz vocal form. Beautifully packaged and extensively annotated, this four-disc set is a perfect overview of some of the '60s' finest and most uncompromising vocal jazz.
