1964 March 21: New York Carnegie Hall
Second solo concert at Carnegie and first recording session with Philips.

Nina's signing with Philips Records in late 1963 heralded a new and important period in her career. While Colpix offered her a consistent opportunity to record on a regular basis, the label's international reach was very limited: in the UK, for instance, Colpix's licensee was Pye Records and almost none of Nina's albums had been issued in Britain.
-Sylvia Hampton and David Nathan, Nina Simone, Break Down & Let It All Out (Sanctuary, 2004)

By this time I had changed record companies from Colpix to Philips; although Colpix wanted to re-sign me I was seduce away by an astonishing man - Wilhelm Langenberg, known to everyone as Big Willy. I came off stage one night at The Village Gate to find this huge man who must have weighed three hundred pounds in my dressing room. ... He said 'I'm Wilhelm Langenberg and I've come to take you back to Holland so you can be on the Philips label. I own it.'. And so he did, with his partner, Irving Green.
