Nina Simone

You’ve Got To Learn (CD)

The Newport Jazz Festival had always brought the best out in Nina Simone. When she took to that famous stage on 2 July 1966, the audience was treated to the full range of her artistry—from the opener, a breathtaking version of “You’ve Got To Learn” to a uniquely swinging take on “Mississippi Goddam." Unwilling to let her leave the stage, and after sustained applause, her fans were rewarded with the show-stopping encore, “Music For Lovers.” This previously-unknown and unreleased recording makes it clear why hearing Nina Simone in concert was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
