Nona Hendryx @ Jazz Standard

The great vocalist (producer, songwriter, actress, author, etc.) Nona Hendryx was the very special guest of drummer Terri Lyne Carrington’s “Mosaic Project” last month – along with a well-stocked band w/Tineke Postma, Tia Fuller, Ingrid Jensen, Helen Sung, Tamir Shmerling and Nir Felder. It was great to hear Nona do her thing in our intimate room – and she let it all out! Seems like “Strange Fruit” is becoming as ubiquitous as “My Funny Valentine” these days, but Nona really lent the necessary gravitas to the situation in her striking rendition.
