Nina Simone – “Little Girl Blue”, by Larry Deniston
My pick this month is Nina Simone’s Little Girl Blue, Jazz Images 37010. Originally issued by Bethlehem Records in late 1957, there are many, many different issues of this seminal album including a 24/96 high resolution album on Qobuz which sounds terrific.
This stellar album with her sultry voice and captivating piano is a joy to listen to. The piano on the first track of the album, “Mood Indigo”, is simple, but elegant and the remaining tracks are just as engaging. Highly recommended!
