Nina Simone said that she'd rather have people remember her for her album Nina Simone And Piano! than for her surprise hit "My Baby Just Cares For Me". And when you listen to the album, you fully understand why. This is Nina Simone stripped bare; an introspective, intimate album about death, reincarnation, loneliness and love. The simple piano arrangements and poignant vocals make you creep closer to the music - and the artist - with every listen.
Though commercially unsuccessful, this album was released to great critical acclaim in 1969, and it is a true gem in Nina Simone's body of work. It has remained a rarity over the years and now Music On Vinyl would like to give it due attention by making it the first of a few Simone releases waiting in the wings.
