Cheer Up Little Girl Blue

When I found a copy of Jazz singer Nina Simone’s debut album “Little Girl Blue” at our Venice store I couldn’t stop smiling all day. The album was first released in 1958 when Nina was in her mid-twenties and it contains some of my favorite songs of hers; “My Baby Just Cares for Me”, “Plain Gold Ring”, and “Mood Indigo”. The album art was inspired by a shoot she had done earlier in Central Park, and so inspired by the lovely Nina I did a mini shoot in West Hollywood’s own “Plummer Park”.
