Barra
1962: New York
It was Nina's idea to do the Ellington album. It was a nice album, one that I'm very proud of. She and I worked well togheter and she was open to suggestions. She reminded me of a mild-mannered Barbra Streisand in her approach to working in the studio: Nina was not a time-waster because she knew the longer you spent the studio, the less money you'd make as an artist!
-Stu Phillips, producer (2004 interview)
