Sunday Jazz Corner with Nina Simone

This version of  “Strange Fruit” by Nina Simone channels what many feel during racial times from years gone by to current controversial issues such as the Trayvon Martin shooting.  See the link below for the lyrics (controversial to many) and songwriters credits.  Billie Holiday’s original version was the popular version of this jazz classic.  It is equally if not better than Nina’s version but this rendition adds such a darkness and extra edgy realness that haunts your awareness.

If you do not already have a collection of Nina Simone’s music, treat yourself and go to iTunes and listen through her incredible career and legacy.  I thought I had almost everything by her, but just downloaded two albums I’d never heard before.
