Quoting from her bio on www.ninasimone.com: “Nina Simone was the consummate musical storyteller…who used her remarkable talent to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, passion, and love through a magnificent body of works. She earned the moniker ‘High Priestess of Soul’ for she could weave a spell so seductive and hypnotic that the listen lost track of time a space as they became absorbed in the moment.”

In honor of Black History Month, The Nash is presenting an afternoon devoted to the story and artistry of Nina Simone.  It will begin with a NashTalk by Alan Light, author of the book, “What Happened, Miss Simone?”, followed by a stunning performance of Nina Simone’s works by Rosalyn McClore. Lewis Nash will join Ms. McClore for the grand finale.

A veteran music journalist, Alan Light is also the author of The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley and the Unlikely Ascent of “Hallelujah” and Let’s Go Crazy: Prince and the Making of Purple Rain. Light was previously the editor-in-chief of Vibe and Spin and a senior writer for Rolling Stone. Light is also a frequent contributor to the New York Times. His highly acclaimed book, “What Happened, Miss Simone?” will be available for purchase and signing.

Rosalyn McClore has gained a reputation at jazz festivals worldwide and east coast venues for sophisticated, elegant and seductive performances. McClore captures the essence of Nina Simone and is in the process of recording an album in tribute to Miss Simone and developing an off-Broadway show about her life and music. This show at The Nash will be McClore’s debut performance in Arizona. rosalynmcclore.com
