Jazz Appreciation Month: Nina Simone

"She was one of the most extraordinary artists of the twentieth century, an icon of American music. She 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...She was who the world would come to know as Nina Simone." ~ Source: Official Home of Nina Simone (https://www.ninasimone.com/biography/)
