When this album was recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1960,
Nina Simone had just had her first Top 20 hit with 'I Loves You, Porgy,'
but the 'Porgy' found here (written by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields,
most famous for 'I Can't Give You Anything But Love') is actually a
continuation of Gershwin's original version of the story. Other
highlights include 'Flo Me La,' an African work chant, and 'Little Liza
Jane,' an African-American folk song.
