    Version

    She's "version". Unique and amazing. I respect her so much as a musician. I can only imagine how she must've felt wanting to be a successful classical pianist but resorting to make music that didn't necessarily match her goal and talent. But that did not...

    Passion Of Nina

    Her music speaks to my soul. I am enamored by her strength and vulnerability, her passion and her pain. There are so many elements about her that makes her mysterious yet open. Amazing!

    Ne Me Quitte Pas!

    "Ne Me Quitte Pas" (translated "Don't Leave Me") has to be one the THE most beautiful songs ever recorded.  Although Nina didn't write it-- Jaques Brel did in '59-- her version is, hands down, the most memorable.  I don't speak much French...

    Open Letter To A Friend Explaining Nina

    Nina. Nina was passionate. She loved her people and struggled, really struggled with injustice. ML King was a friend, and we know what happened there. She was born in the 30's and the equal rights amendment was not signed until 1964. She wrote Mississippi goddam when four girls...

    She's Ace, But It's Still a Little Scary...

    that I'm listening to a dead woman when I'm listening to her music!   I mean, though she is an absolutely fantastic singer and has real meaning without her lyrics, it's still a little spooky.  *shudder* However, I do love Eunice Kathleen Waymon and I'm not...

    Cbc Radio This Week

    Ok, this is driving me batty, and maybe a true fan can help me. CBC Radio in Toronto – either Radio 1 or 2, I think either Thursday or Friday – played a song that is such a blatant rip-off of "My baby just cares for me" that it made my jaw drop. But I was busy and didn't note...
