INCLUDES 2 BONUS TRACKS

The breathtaking originality of the second half of the show is what makes this album great. Opening with Oscar Brown, Jr.’s “Brown Baby” and then Michael Olatunji’s “Zungo” and delivering a long version of another traditional song “Children, Go Where I Send You”, Simone makes a profound stand on the black musical tradition, drawing on her deep reading in Frantz Fanon’s auto-theory and Léopold Senghor’s ideas on négritude to create a body of work that transcends jazz styles and critical pigeonholes. She was unique, but only because she drew on multitudes." - Penguin Guide to Jazz

"Always surprising, but nevertheless totally coherent and devoid of any artifice, At the Village Gate is one of the most emblematic albums recorded by the unparalleled talent of Nina Simone." - Jazz Magazine
