A gifted classical pianist, Simone, born Eunice Waymon, moved here in the early 1950s so she could study at Rittenhouse’s prestigious Curtis Institute of Music. But Simone, who had already studied at Juilliard, was rejected by the school — something she blamed on racial discrimination. To earn a living, Simone then began playing piano in an Atlantic City nightclub, where she was told that she needed to sing — something she’d never even considered doing — if she wanted to get anywhere in the music world. She soon returned to Philadelphia where she performed at various jazz clubs and the rest is history: dozens of albums that stretch from jazz to folk to R&B to gospel, and an active role in the civil rights era. This two-cd set pretty much covers the acclaimed 1958-1962 recordings.
