See the Show * Hear the Stories * Feel the Music. 

Known as the “Goddess of the Piano” and “High Priestess of Soul” Nina mesmerized audiences with her unique approach to popular, gospel, folk, blues, jazz and classical music. Born in 1933 and first learning piano at 4 years old, by the 1950’s she was performing in New York City jazz clubs.  Blending these styles and her powerful delivery of lyrics, this exceptional woman left an indelible mark on the world which would challenge hearts and change minds. Bonnie Lee Galea, Quinton Dunne, Richard Coates and Steve Todd as the Jazz in Cheek Quartet perform her most memorable songs ‘Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’, ‘Sinnerman’, ‘Four Women’, ‘Little Liza Jane’, ‘Feelin’ Good’, ‘My Baby Just Cares for Me’ & more.
