Nina Simone

You’ve gotta love Nina Simone, a most distinctive voice. A terrific arranger, the complete package. First check out her version of “Ain’t got no” from Hair.

And of course her version of “Mississippi Goddam” is the ultimate, but then of course she wrote it anyway.

And one of my all time favorites has always been “Feeling Good” and of course there is no video I can find of her performing it. So we will have to make do with the excellent video HBO put out for their “Six Feet Under” promo.
