Last updated on May 5, 2014. Nina Simone - At Town Hall (1959). Nina Simone at Town Hall' was recorded live at The Town Hall on 15 September 1959 and released as her second album for Colpix Records that same year. The show was her New York concert debut. Serious-minded but never po-faced, Simone's joy is evident by her squeals of delight at the end of several numbers; this is an artist clearly enjoying herself as much as her audience. Although only occasionally singing her own material, the authority and sincerity she brought to other's work made their songs her own - George Gershwin's Summertime, Dimitri Tiomkin's Wild Is the Wind and Billie Holiday's Fine and Mellow are here captured as if they couldn't have been written for anyone else than Simone.
