Nina Simone

Sat, 07. Nov 1998, 9.15 PM | Soul & Groove
Festsaal Messe Basel

Really everyone is able to hum along to the hit «My Baby Just Cares For Me». With this and other world hits the charismatic Nina Simone succeeded to sing herself into the hearts of jazz, blues and gospel fans alike. That this diva was good for many a headline has only aggrandized her aura. Not having been in Switzerland for many years, she gave her one and only concert in 1998 exclusively at our festival. The groove was in the air!

Festsaal, Mustermesse Basel

Nina Simone’s worldwide hit «My Baby Just Cares For Me» thrilled jazz, blues and gospel fans alike. These music genres were also components of her repertoire, which, enriched by the unique sound of her voice, brought down the house at the festival hall. Maisha Grant, who had already taken the stage with Ella Fitzgerald and who had already thrilled audiences in Basel in 1989, opened the evening.
