Sing the Truth
is a tribute to the musical heritage of one of the greatest jazz divas of our time, Nina Simone. She died in 2003 at the age of 71. The tribute to her name that was organized a year later became a remarkable project that was only performed in a few places. Three great jazz vocalists, Dianne Reeves, Lizz Wright
and Nina's daughter Simone
, will pay homage to her work, together with the original Nina Simone Band
. The orchestra is led by Al Shackman, the band leader who accompanied Nina for 41 years. Special guest will be Bob Dorough on piano. The repertoire will stretch from Ne Me Quitte Pas
to Four Women
. Especially that last song will impart in four couplets the impressive artistic scope of Nina Simone.
