AHH!!! Music with a purpose!!! Captured "in the moment" at Birdland in New York City on August 8th, 2004, the setting is live and Natalie Douglas captures a "real performance". The audience is a part of the evening and Ms. Douglas develops a close connection with them. Music mixed with personal insight. She even gets them to participate on "Forbidden Fruit"

The music of Nina Simone conjures up deep emotions creating a mood and reaction through both sounds and lyrics. Passion, Anger, Love, just scratching the surface here. This is more than a tribute recording. Ms. Douglas holds Nina Simone in high regard both as an artist and as a person.

Offering a tribute to anyone’s music is difficult. But choosing a person who has strongly influenced your development musically and personally presents an even higher challenge. How do you frame a tribute, get to the root of what you want to say without getting sappy and losing the audience? How do you get deep enough to communicate the passion you feel?

Natalie Douglas tackles this challenge perfectly. First, she lets the emotion and passion come from the music. She decided to: Just Sing It!!! Second, she cracks the door to her feelings for Nina and her music by giving the audience personal stories that make the evening "real".

The rest of her ensemble supports her wonderfully whether with the tune is jazz, blues, or gospel.

This project comes from the heart and provides great music and personal insight to the artist. Check it out.

Thanks Natalie!

Musicians: Piano: Mark Hartman, Tenor Saxophone: Patience Higgins, Percussion: Sean McDaniel, Bass: Steve Doyle
