Happy birthday, Nina


One of the greatest jazz singers of all time, Nina Simone, who died in 2003, would have turned 85 years old today.

Born Eunice Waymon in 1933, Simone’s recording career spanned 50 years, sprinkled with songs such as “Mississippi Goddamn” and “To Be Young, Gifted, and Black.”

In honor of her birthday here’s 15 tracks of my favorite Nina Simone tracks.
