Bril Barrett has always had a deep respect, love, and admiration for the music of the legendary Nina Simone. He embarked on creating work with M.A.D.D. Rhythms which pays the utmost respect and homage to Nina Simone.
Working with Musical Director/Drummer Ben Jammin Johnson and legendary singers Maggie Brown, Joan Collaso, Felena Bunn and Margaret Murphy-Webb, his goal for each piece is to exude a different part of Nina’s career and aesthetic.
