Album artwork for Jazz Monuments by Nina Simone

4LP box set, printed sleeves housed in a hard box. Pressed on standard weight black vinyl. Includes a 30 x 30 8-page booklet featuring the biography of Nina Simone but also anecdotes and citations. All the tracks included in this box have been remastered for the occasion.

Nina Simone rightly belongs in the Pantheon of exceptional voices, as an immense artist whose fervour and mastery of the piano made every performance a uniquely original work of jazz, soul and classical music combined. A whirlwind of triumphs and frustrations characterized her life, perhaps explained by a mixture of exceptional gifts, a seriously classical piano education, and three critical E. D Zemall episodes that came without warning: the Curtis Institute's refusal to accept her as a pupil; the departure of her husband and manager; and the suffering of black people in Sixties' America. These circumstances forged her into one of the most gifted vocalists of her generation, as well as one of its most controversial personalities, fascinating millions of admirers.
