The “CHI” is coming to the “ATL” this Friday, July 1st as acclaimed vocalist Lynne Jordan brings her “Nina Simone Tribute” to Midtown’s City Winery at Ponce City Market. Jordan along with her 12 piece band, The Shivers will take Simone fans through her classic songbook and perform such hits as “I Put A Spell On You,” “Mississippi Goddam” and “Ne Me Quitte Pas.”
“I’m celebrating the diversity of Nina’s repertoire, says Jordan. “For so long, I was told to nail my music to a genre and like her, I never did. To me, she represents the indie spirit, individuality and inclusiveness.”
Jordan is a staple in Chicago’s jazz and blues circuit and has performed at a number of the cities clubs, swanky lounges and charity events. She also had a fan in the late movie critic Roger Ebert and he often referred to her as his “favorite diva.” Jordan has also taken her live act to Europe as well as South America.
Check her out below performing “Be My Husband” at Chicago’s City Winery.
