She called it “Black Classical Music,” and it resists all definitions. Its jazz, rhythm and blues, folk, and gospel. &nbsp;It’s a combination as Rich as the culture. Like any legend, Nina Simone became a symbol for People and movements through the years, but she was first and foremost a performer. She acted out the story of each song as if it happened to her just yesterday. This hour we’ll hear about the music and life of Nina Simone from colleagues and friends including Odetta, Camille Yarbrough, Guitarist Al Schackman, Patti Smith journalist David Nathan and more.</p><p> Tue, 25 Feb 2014 05:00:00 +0000 40444 at http://redriverradio.org Nina Simone: To Be Free Caravan http://redriverradio.org/post/caravan-38 <div><strong>Airs Friday, December 6 at 9 p.m.</strong> &nbsp;This week on the Caravan we'll feature new&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 1.5;">music from One Mile An Hour and the Be Good Tanya's plus tracks from&nbsp;</span>Myshkin's<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Ruby Warbler, Patty Griffin, Andrew Bird, Michael Hedges, Maggie&nbsp;</span>Koerner<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> along with Blues from </span>Odetta<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and </span>Lizz<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Wright.
