The Amazing Nina Simone -- originally released in 1959 -- was Nina Simone's first album for Colpix Records. The album contains a variety of material, including jazz, gospel, and folk songs. Compared to her debut, which showcased Simone's piano playing ability in addition to her singing, the piano was downplayed on Amazing in favor of string arrangements. The orchestra is led by famous conductor Bob Mersey (staff arranger/composer for CBS television and Columbia Records and also their musical director).
