Movie Reviews

Young & Powerful Nina - A Must See!
Aaron Overfield | | 03/09/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD exudes the kind of raw emotion and power Nina Simone was known for. Two early performances give us a peek into Nina's budding career and a hint at why she reached superstardom. From improv to jazz standards to African chants to Israeli folk tunes, Nina covers a lot of territory in this short film and none of it disappoints. Standouts on this DVD are "Zungo," "I Loves You, Porgy" and "Erets Zavat Chalav". See a young Nina belt out a few of the songs she is best known for - with style, class and grit."

"Having enjoyed Nina for decades, the video tapes allowed me to
visually revisit the past.The quality of the tapes was good,
and Nina was Nina. I may have to buy additional additional
Rare Gem

"This dvd is worth the purchase for the emotional intensity of "I'll Look Around" and "For All We Know". This is how music is supposed to sound: emotive and utterly original."
