+ Videos: Who knows where the time goes – Nina Simone

Who knows where the time goes – Nina Simone
There is no doubt to say that Nina Simone is one of the best artists of all time. I think most of us have listened to many of her famous records, such as: Sinner man, Wild is the Wind, Don’t explain, I put a spell on you, etc… People have called her music Jazz but she always wanted to call it Afro-American music.
Well her voice is great but what I love about Nina Simone is how she plays the piano. And above all, her style said it all; a soulful style that is very Nina Simone. This is another love song called “If you knew”, recorded live at Ronnie Scott‘s Club in 1984 (London):

It would be a bit unfair or awkward to say that I prefer Nina Simone to other elders like Billie Holiday or Ella Fitzgerald. Yes, Billie and Ella are superb in my eyes, but the style of Nina Simone is more interesting to me.
