Nina Simone's combination of classical training, smoky-alto vocal delivery and the influence of modern jazz made her a novel and inspiring jazz singer and instrumentalist. Simone's many talents are on full display on 1959's Little Girl Blue, her debut for the Bethlehem label which launched an unrivaled career, and finds The High Priestess of Soul wonderfully setting the mood on vocals and piano while handling all of the arrangements and also offering up her own composition with "Central Park Blues." Little Girl Blue documents Simone's unparalleled and idiosyncratic musical persona at a particularly vibrant, formative stage, and helped launch her on a trajectory with more than its share of personal and professional trials and triumphs.
