The Story of Nina Simone
The Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw & Sabrina Starke
Together with singer-soul-writer Sabrina Starke, the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw explores the fringes of Nina Simone's wonderful and deeply personal body of work. With songs like Feeling Good and My Baby Just Cares, they pay tribute to the jazz singer and human rights activist.
With her melodic and powerful voice Sabrina Starke creates a certain consciousness and knows how to touch into the heart. Nina Simone is an important inspiration to her. The Jazz Orchetra of the Concertgebouw is a world-class big band. With its strong rhythm section and dito winds they tour all over the globe with all sorts of different programmes and many international soloists.
