I Put a Spell on You: The Autobiography of Nina Simone Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gorgeous, inimitable singer and songwriter, Nina Simone (1933-2003) changed the face of both music and race relations in America. She struck a chord with bluesy jazz ballads like "Put a Little Sugar in My Bowl" and powerful protest songs such as "Mississippi Goddam" and "To Be Young, Gifted, and Black," the anthem of the American Civil Rights movement. Coinciding with the re-release of her famous Philips Recordings, here are the reflections of the "High Priestess of Soul" on her own life.

Synopsis:

The mesmerizing autobiography of one of the most revered soul, jazz, and blues divas of our time-the late Nina Simone
