I just watched the documentary on Nina Simone last night on Netflix and thought it was very good. Good storytelling and well put together. She was an amazing, interesting and troubled woman, but so talented.
Below are two of her songs. Enjoy.
The first is My Baby Just Cares for Me. The piano work is truly amazing and shows her dexterity and talent. The intro, however, shows her mental and emotional fragility. As a writer, she comes across as a truly complex character in this video and the one below.
Below is the song that most people of my generation know her for. This version shows her vulnerability as well as talent.
