On this edition of Soul Talkin’, we pay homage to the departed NINA SIMONE, birth date Feb. 21, 1933. David shares his recollections of Nina and championing her career as the founder of the Appreciation Society named in her honor. In addition, Kevin recalls his discussion with composer/arranger Horace Ott about his writing “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”, first recorded by Nina in 1964. Photo is of David Nathan and Nina Simone, London, 1968.
The conclusion of our Soul Talkin’ conversation, honoring the late Nina Simone. Here, David continues his tale of meeting and accompanying Nina to her UK television debut on Ready, Steady Go! Kevin chimes in on when she appeared on a now-legendary American public TV program for kids (clue, the show featured a very large feathered friend!) All this and great classic Nina tunes as well!
