Feeling Good: A M.A.D.D Rhythms Tribute to Nina Simone
Bril Barrett has always had a deep respect, love, and admiration for the music of the legendary Nina Simone. He embarked on creating work with M.A.D.D. Rhythms which pays the utmost respect and homage to Nina Simone.
Working with Ben Johnson and legendary singers Dee Alexander, Maggie Brown, Joan Collaso, and Tecora Rodgers, his goal for each piece was to exude a different part of Nina’s career and aesthetic.
