A new documentary on the life of Nina Simone will be released on Netflix on June 26, 2015.  "What Happened, Miss Simone" (101 mins.) is directed by Liz Garbus.  

"Nina Simone's general narrative has inspired so many young women throughout her career and since her death (in 2003)," said Rodney Franks, host of "Into the Evening" on Jazz89 KUVO.  "She was a complicated spirit, with a lot of depth."

A ten-year dream comes to fruition this Sunday in Boulder at "Jump for Jazz," a series of free workshops, with an evening concert.   Organizer Miriam Paisner shared the story of this grassroots music education event with "First Take with Lando and Chavis."

Moreover, musicians from other areas of the nation comment on the comradery of our musicians, a not so common occurrence. Our June CD of the Month is by a very esteemed and versatile member of our family of musicians, Max Wagner.
