NOTES
A tribute for nina simone was produced during an intense time in my life. i was faced with eviction and had a week to do this album. i still feel the need to create a part 2, but it helped me out during a time of crisis. all, mentally, financially and psychologically. she is my inspiration and i hope to share the vibrations and love i have for her through my music. enjoy.
