profile & recordings >>

Nina Simone gives a good account of these wonderful songs using soft nuances among the notes and the fragile melodies in her voice. She uses vocal dynamic brilliantly and her skills on piano are to be admired.

'I Put A Spell On You' has many famous versions including artists including Diamanda Galas and Marilyn Manson. Simone's version more than compares with its very impressive arrangements and beautiful vocal interpretation, giving it a more serious and dramatic sensation than the original.

Another strong version included in this album is 'Ne Me Quitte Pas' by Jacques Brel but 'Feeling Good' must be the most played song off this record which is understandable because of the great combination of Nina Simone's vocal delivery and the backing band's arrangements to give the song full dramatic effect.

'I Put A Spell On You' is truly a masterpiece, and possibly Nina Simone's best record, indispensable for any music fan who likes female vocal jazz.
