Growing up I had few, actually it might be zero jazz influences so I didn't hear a Nina Simone song until I was nearly into my twenties. I probably had heard them before but had no one to say that's who it is. So I was late to hear and fully appreciate a Nina Simone song. My first was probably "Feeling Good" but this one "Sinnerman" is my favourite.
You might recognise it from a few films!
