I Sing Just to Know I’m Alive is a newly discovered Nina Simone CD. Her irresistible voice wraps around lyrics with a breathtaking clarity that will lift you from the doldrums. This collection of songs covers the gambit of world music, jazz, and r&b. She brings that special quality of nuanced singing so that each of the tracks becomes a classical art song. Her cover version of Alone Again Naturally is stupendous.
