Regular price £14.95 Sale

Of all the major singers of the late 20th century, Nina Simone was one of the hardest to label. She recorded extensively in soul, jazz, and pop and was also comfortable with blues, gospel, and Broadway. She has subsequently been labelled as a 'soul' singer in terms of emotion, rather than form. Her repertoire included jazz standards, gospel and spirituals, classical music, folk songs of diverse origin, blues, pop, songs from musicals and opera, African chants as well as her own compositions.

This volume contains 15 of Nina's best-known songs, transcribed for piano and vocals, with guitar chord frames, including -
Ain't Got No, I Got Life; Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood; Feeling Good; I Loves You Porgy; I Puta Spell On You; I Think It's Going To Rain Today; I Want a Little Sugar In My Bowl; I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to be Free; The Look of Love; Mr Bojangles; My Baby Just Cares for Me; Nobody's Fault But Mine; Since I Fell For You; Sinnerman; To Be Young, Gifted and Black.
