For those of you who, like me, didnt even know Nina Simones performance at Montreux 1976 was a thing to be watched and admired, the real value of this event is that now you do. Simone is a powerhouse of crazy and talent, perhaps unhinged but always in control. Tonight, the entire thing is reenacted with Roslyn Hart, the superb cabaret artist, playing Simone. Therell be video, therell be pathos, therell be music, therell be joy.
Bottom Line: Relive an epic breakdown and breakthrough of one of the 20th-centurys great performers.
