EDITORS’ NOTES

Nina Simone's visionary mingling of jazz, soul, blues, gospel, and classical music makes for a profoundly diverse catalog. Her quavering voice and rippling piano hold equal sway over fierce laments like “Work Song” and softly spellbinding ballads like “He Needs Me.” She reimagined standards of all genres as her own mercurial creations—and championed civil rights in the process.
