"Seven for Saturday" is a great way to see some of the men and women of jazz in action. Today, you get to sit back and enjoy the one and only Nina Simone!
Ms. Simone's music has a little bit of everything in it - jazz, blues, soul, folk, gospel and pop.
I hope that you enjoy the videos. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment. :)
"She was one of the most extraordinary artists of the twentieth century, an icon of American music. Ms. Simone was the consummate musical storyteller, a griot as she would come to learn, who used her remarkable talent to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, passion, and love through a magnificent body of works.
Miss Nina earned the moniker ‘High Priestess of Soul’ for she could weave a spell so seductive and hypnotic that the listener lost track of time and space as they became absorbed in the moment. She was who the world would come to know as Nina Simone."
