This budget compilation of legendary jazz vocalist Nina Simone is by no means the definitive overview of her career -- Bittersweet: The Very Best of Nina Simone comes the closest. That said, Reflections is an adequate place for Simone neophytes to get a sense of the haunting vocalist's early work. Most everything she recorded during the '50s and '60s is worth taking a listen to and a few of her best tracks -- including "Nina's Blues" and "The Other Woman" -- are here.
