Reseña de álbum

After an uncharacteristic (for her) four-year hiatus from recording, Nina Simone returned to the fringes of the pop world with Baltimore, the only album she recorded for the CTI label. While it bears some of the musical stylings of the period — light reggae inflections that hint of Steely Dan's "Haitian Divorce" — the vocals are unmistakably Simone's. Like many of her albums, the content is wildly uneven; Simone simply covers too much ground and there's too little attention paid to how songs flow together. As a result, a robust torch piano ballad like "Music for Lovers" is followed immediately by one of Simone's more awkward moments, an attempt to keep up with a jaunty rhythm track on a cover of Hall & Oates' "Rich Girl." Still, one must give her credit for always being provocative in her cover song choices, as she clearly scores on the Randy Newman-penned title track and a dramatic reading of Judy Collins' "My Father." Her voice throughout is in fine form, even when she phones it in on the album-closing traditional gospel tunes, but arranger David Matthews is a mismatch for her: He blows the arrangements with excessive string overlays and needlessly blaring background vocals. Simone herself all but disavowed the album shortly after its release, testament to her eternally contrarian, iconic nature. Despite her misgivings, though, Baltimore is an occasionally spellbinding if erratic album, a challenging and worthwhile listen for people ready to dip into the lesser-known entries in Nina Simone's vast catalog.

Love Nina Simone

Her Music Makes me fly away and forget about everything... her music makes me feel good. Rest In Peace Nina Simone (1933 - 2003)


Nina remains amazing in this versatile production. She persists in demonstrating her African roots while branching out into a variety of genres. For me, she is tops. I was mesmerized as a teen when I saw her at a concert at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago and remain a seriously appreciative fan.

Entre los vocalistas más importantes de finales del siglo XX, Nina Simone es una de los más difíciles de rotular. Grabó muchísimo en los ritmos del soul, jazz y pop, a veces todo ello dentro de un mismo álbum; se sentía a gusto con el blues, el gospel, y las melodías de Broadway. Quizás sea más acertado clasificarla como cantante de "soul" (del alma) en términos de la emoción antes que de la forma. Digamos que, como Aretha Franklin o Dusty Springfield, fue una ecléctica que tiñó de cualidades del...
