High Priestess Of Soul is a landmark recording by the legendary jazz vocalist, pianist and songwriter. The album features elements of jazz, pop, soul and gospel. Peaking within the top thirty on Billboard’s Top R&B albums, High Priestess Of Soul showcases hits including “Work Song,” “Take Me To The Water” and “Come Ye.”


Perhaps a bit more conscious of contemporary soul trends than her previous Philips albums, this is still very characteristic of her mid-'60s work in its eclectic mix of jazz, pop, soul, and some blues and gospel. Hal Mooney directs some large band arrangements for the material on this LP without submerging Simone's essential strengths. The more serious and introspective material is more memorable than the good-natured pop selections here. The highlights are her energetic vocal rendition of the Oscar Brown/Nat Adderley composition "Work Song" and her spiritual composition "Come Ye," on which Simone's inspirational vocals are backed by nothing other than minimal percussion. --AllMusic Review by Richie Unterberger
