LIVE & KICKIN
There are rising stars, shooting stars, fallen stars, and then there are those stars that come into being, that assume their destined position in our cosmic universe and remain fixed forever, glowing in constant vigilance, bringing with it a rejuvenating energy force that tends to validate the right for self-determined existence.
Such a star is Nina Simone. Born to enlighten thru her gifted artistry as she showers planet earth with her lyrical, melodious vignettes, depicting life between the keys.
Live & Kickin was recorded live in 1985, during the course of her most recent intercontinental tour. Each song selected for this set was so chosen in testimony that our star of stars, after 30 years shining, Dr. Nina Simone is still very much…live and kickin.
