“The breath-taking originality of the second half of the show is what makes this album great. Opening with Oscar Brown, Jr.’s Brown Baby and then Michael Olatunji’s Zungo and delivering a long version of another traditional song Children, Go Where I Send You, Simone makes a profound stand on the black musical tradition, drawing on her deep reading in Frantz Fanon’s auto-theory and Leopold Senghor’s ideas on negritude to create a body of work that transcends jazz styles and critical pigeonholes. She was unique, but only because she drew on multitudes.” - Brian Morton
