Love Me Or Leave Me – Nina Simone

With Johann Sebastian Bach’s Fugue in C Major mixed into the piano solo — infusing her love for Bach and her classical Juilliard School of Music education into a standard — this is singer, songwriter, civil rights activist, and jazz legend Nina Simone performing “Love Me Or Leave Me” on The Ed Sullivan Show on September 11, 1960.

In the archives, a few more great performances: Tina Turner, Louis Armstrong, Tito Puente, Viola Smith, Etta James, Cab Calloway and the Nicholas Brothers, Glenn Miller with the Nicholas Brothers and Dorothy Dandridge, Dizzy Gillespie, and Ella Fitzgerald.
