This is good, but the album isn't exactly new, it came out last May.

I've recently discovered Simone as a jazz vocalist. Vaguely familiar with her theatre background, I was captivated by her performance with the current tour, Sing the Truth, featuring Dianne Reeves, Angelique Kidjo, and Lizz Wright at London's Barbican Hall on 16 July, 2009. I think few people knew Nina Simone had a daughter, no less one who followed her footstep as a jazz vocalist. As one of the vocalist interpreting Nina Simone's music on this tour, Simone's performance is powerful, intriguing, and she took the stage as if she owned it. The Sing the Truth tour is one of the best performances I've seen this year and I look forward to hearing more great music from Lisa Simone!
