An exception. A rebel. In short, a jazz singer light years away from the clichés of the jazz world. Nina Simone's art was, above all, an outcry; a glimmer of hope in an America plagued by segregation. Yumiko Hioki's superb comic strip perfectly captures the uniqueness of this great voice (and pianist). Unrivaled charisma is at the heart of the recordings that make up this exciting volume of the BD Music collection. The gems we're treated to here were recorded between 1957 and 1962, mainly for the Colpix label, a period during which Simone began to find a certain artistic freedom that matched her untameable personality. This freedom is most evident on her reinterpretations of blues, jazz and folk standards where she was already singing in a way different to everyone else; the Nina Simone way! © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Neo Soul in 10 Albums

In the midst of the 90s when hip-hop was going through its golden age, a revolution within soul music was also underway. With Erykah Badu, D’angelo, Jill Scott and many others, the genre found again its class: an echo of the simplicity and refinement that brought to life the albums of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Roberta Flack. After years in the shadow of the reigning ultra-commercial and soft R&B, the noticeably more underground Neo Soul, or Nu Soul, relit the flame of soul music and returned it to its roots in terms of both composition and lyricism. A brief but highly influential movement.

Impulse! Orange was the New Black

Along with Blue Note and Verve, Impulse! is without doubt one of the best-known American jazz labels. Painted in orange and black, the label not only brought us John Coltrane, but also some of the most adventurous musicians of the 1960s.

The Struggles of Nina Simone

Although today she is seen as one of the most original voices in jazz and soul, Nina Simone's life was anything but a smooth and gentle climb to the top. The woman who dreamed of being the first black American classical pianist had to struggle against others, against her own family, and even against herself.
