bryn listens : nina simone

ninasimone_bp Nina Simone is one of my all time favorite singers/performers and I've been listening to her a lot lately. I did some digging around as I tried to decide which Nina song I should post for my now-weekly music installment. I listened to bits and pieces of countless Nina songs, waiting for the one that really felt perfect for right now, this afternoon, this rainy day in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

The minute I heard her voice come through on this one, it was settled. I'm sitting at my desk, soaring. Aren't you?

Listen to a live recording of Trouble In Mind off of the album, Nina's Choice, released in 1964.
