"Of the many live albums Nina Simone released, this one stands out as her greatest."

"The strong emotional approach would become another characteristic in her art. She uses her voice with its remarkable timbre and her careful piano playing as means to achieve her artistic aim: to express love, hate, sorrow, joy, loneliness, the whole range of human emotions, through music in a direct way."
- All About Jazz

Consisting of three different recordings Simone made in Carnegie Hall in 1964, this served as a sequel to Simone's previous live album from 1963, also recorded at Carnegie Hall. Nina Simone In Concert marked the beginning of Simone's civil rights activism and includes her protest songs Old Jim Crow and Mississippi Goddam. The bitter and angry Mississippi Goddam was written as a reaction to the assassination of civil rights leader Medgar Evers and the deaths of four African-American children in a church bombing in 1963. The song became a civil rights anthem and is one of the many that Simone would write dealing with the reality of race relations in America.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
