WAX TIME RECORDS

  • £15.99


Little Girl Blue was Nina Simone's first album, and first recording ever, featuring Jimmy Bond on bass and Albert 'Tootie' Heath on drums. Originally released in 1959 on Bethlehem Records, when she was 25 years old, the album was met with immediate success and acclaim and has not been out of press at any time during the following 60 years.

This incredibly confident performance, which saw her infuse her classical training (and a particular love of Bach) and remarkably tender and powerful voice into jazz standards marked her even at this early point as one of the greats of our time, comparable to Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.
