NINA SIMONE’s story from the late sixties to the nineties can be told through her legendary performances in Montreux. Taking to the Montreux stage for the first time on 16 June 1968 for the festival’s second edition, Simone built a lasting relationship with Montreux Jazz Festival and its Creator and Founder Claude Nobs, which uniqueness, trust and electricity can be clearly felt on the recordings. Simone’s multi-faceted and radical story is laid bare on NINA SIMONE: THE MONTREUX YEARS.

This phenomenal live collection includes performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival from 1968, 1976, 1981, 1986 and 1990. A breathtaking snapshot of an unforgettable career and unforgettable voice, these performances showcase some of Simone's most powerful live performances. Featuring rare and previously unreleased material from Claude Nobs’ private collection.

Nina Simone devotees worldwide will be thrilled by the inclusion of the powerful “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free,” poignant and fearless “Four Women” and Simone’s hauntingly beautiful performance of “Ne Me Quitte Pas.” A spinetingling version of Janis Ian’s searing and potent “Stars,” which Simone covered for the very first time during her 1976 Montreux performance.
