For four decades, Nina Simone has bewitched listeners with her uncategorizable blend of music. Unwilling to compromise to popular standards, hers has been a lonely course which led her away from the United States. Nina Simone adds to her recording legacy with this fine 1993 collection of contemplative tracks (which was her first release in more than five years).
A SINGLE WOMAN is an appropriately titled, almost autobiographical testament to her life, a meditation on the joys and pains of a woman alone. Her rich, deep voice soars dramatically over lush orchestral arrangements. The album's high point is a superb reprise of her haunting tango arrangement of "Just Say I Love Him" with guitarist Al Shackman (whom she worked with during her early years) making a guest appearance. Also included are three Rod McKuen songs and a moving version of the standard "The Folks Who Live on the Hill" that is dedicated to the late Prime Minister of Barbados.
