  Nice - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nice (pronounced [nis]) (Occitan: Niça or Nissa; Italian: Nizza) is a city in southern France located on the Mediterranean coast, between Marseille and Genoa, with 933,080 inhabitants in the metropolitan area at the 1999 census.
Nice (Nicaea) was founded in the 5th century BC by the Greeks of Marseille and received the name of Νικαία ("Nikaia") in honour of a victory over the neighbouring Ligurians (Nike being the goddess of victory).
In 1543 Nice was attacked by the united forces of Francis I and Barbarossa; and, though the inhabitants repulsed the assault which succeeded the terrible bombardment, they were ultimately compelled to surrender, and Barbarossa was allowed to pillage the city and to carry off 2,500 captives.

 The Nice/ELP
But the Nice is paid so little attention, in fact, that assorted liner notes on their first three records give no hint that the group released two live albums after their first record company - Immediate, which also handled the Small Faces - went belly-up at the end of 1969 (see below).
ELP was very much just a professionalized version of the late-period Nice, with better bass, drum, and vocal performances, plus all those famous synthesizers - Emerson was among the first to make real use of the new technology (see also Abbey Road).
Inevitably, the sound is closer to the Nice than on the later records - mostly because synthesizers are used lightly.

 The Mavens' Word of the Day   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Nice can be traced back to the Latin word nescius 'ignorant' which is actually a combination of the prefix ne 'no' and the word scire 'know'--also the basis for the word science.
Even more puzzling is that by the early 1500's, nice is being used to mean 'requiring great precision or accuracy'--nearly the opposite of its original meaning.
I found an example from Chaucer in the OED where the word means 'wanton or lascivious' that tickles me: "Nyce she was, but she mente Noone harme ne slight in hir entente, But oonely lust & jolyte" (The Romaunt of the Rose).
