First Listen: Gregory Porter - Sinnerman

If you’re familiar with Simone’s musical legacy — gifted vocalist, songwriter, interpreter, and pianist, who spanned multiple genres and influenced scads of followers you know she is a complex person and one-of-kind artist.

There have been many tributes recently that have brought Nina and her music back into the foreground. Round Nina a UK tribute recording, a new Netflix documentary “What Happened, Miss Simone? and now Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, 15 tracks that include Nina’s daughter Lisa, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill takes up the most real estate with 7 tunes but the highlight for me is the Gregory Porter addition, produced by Robert Glasper.

From Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, Gregory Porter with "Sinnerman" is your First Listen for July 24.
