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 labeled 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 and songs from musicals and opera, African chants as well as her own compositions.
This songbook is a second volume of classic songs authentically transcribed for piano, voice and guitar.
