  • Description

    LIMITED EDITION 180g AUDIOPHILE PRESSING ON VIRGIN VINYL - THE COMPLETE ALBUM + 2 BONUS TRACKS. When this album was recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1960, Nina Simone had just had her first Top 20 hit with "I Loves You, Porgy", but the "Porgy" found here is actually a continuation of Gershwin's original version of the story.

    Other highlights include "Flo Me La", an African work chant, and "Little Liza Jane", an African American folk song. A truly great live performance from one of the most original voices in 20th century music.
