This 180g reissue is a live album recorded in 1963 at Carnegie Hall. Singer/pianist/songwriter Nina Simone performs seven songs including "Black Swan", "Will I Find My Love Today" and the instrumental "Theme from Sayonara".

Pianist and singer Nina Simone defied categorization by blending classical, jazz and popular music into an unconventional and highly personal idiom. Over four decades, she galvanized audiences with albums and performances replete with deep passion and keen attention to emotion.

Fiercely honest, Simone was admired for her eccentricity and individualism. She was known for her spirited personality on and off the stage, which included flirting with audience members and voicing her opinions about social topics of the time.

The legacy of Simone's music and message can be heard not only in jazz but amongst the many pop artists who cite her influence. Several of Simone's songs have become jazz standards, and her voice is even familiar to audiences who don't know her name through their frequent use in movie soundtracks and commercials.
