On Saturday 24th February, we'll be celebrating the birthday of ‘The High Priestess of Soul’, Nina Simone. Acclaimed jazz vocalist Judi Jackson will return to the Jazz Cafe to perform a selection of Nina's compositions live with a gospel choir.

Across her 44 year career Simone became one of America’s most prolific and influential composers. Her remarkable voice, and virtuosic piano playing allowed her to weave a legacy of liberation, empowerment, passion and love through a magnificent body of work.

Judi Jackson and her gospel choir will cover the breadth of Simone’s career from her 1959 breakthrough ‘I Loves You Porgy’, to 1960s civil rights ballads like ‘Sinnerman’, through to her commercial success with ‘My Baby Just Cares for Me’ in the 1980s.

We’re delighted to be working once again with American born multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Judi Jackson to pay tribute to Nina Simone. Judi has released music with Snarky Puppy, performed alongside Mavis Staples and recorded live sessions with Jazz FM. By revisiting Nina’s compositions, Judi aims to explore how these songs have influenced her life and career so far.
