1976 July 3: Montreux (CH) 10th Jazz Festival
Nina's second appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival. The Concert of 1976 is considered the best one, her performance was incredible, exciting, riveting. She doesn't only sing, but also has an amusing interaction with the audience.

Long before Lady Gaga erased the line between pop music and performance art and decades before Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse left crowds shaking their heads in laughter or concern, there was the legendary Nina Simone. On July 3rd 1976, Simone stepped onto the stage of the Montreux Jazz Festival after a two-year hiatus in Africa. Belligerent, beguiling and admittedly "half high", Simone gave the Swiss audience a searingly vulnerable musical set, liberally spiced with bizarre musings, forgotten lyrics, fits of temper and querulous shout-outs to her dear (but sadly, absent) friend, David Bowie.
