Jazz Appreciation Month: Nina Simone

Since today is my birthday, and I have already posted something from Ella Fitgerald, I decided to treat myself with my other favorite vocalist, Nina Simone, the "High Priestess of Soul". I came across this live version of one of my favorite tunes by Simone titled "See Line Woman". Here, she adds a little bit of comedy to spice things up a bit more, as well as keeping it minimal by only using lead and background vocals and percussion.
