This is like the WORSE shot video EVER. since the cameraman from the light booth never bothered to shoot the dancers on the floor. However, we are posting just for documentation purposes only. You really had to be in the audience to get the full effect of the nuances of this piece.

In this video, Jazz Ain't Dead with our singer, Diandra Patrick, performs a quick Nina Simone tribute at Bowery Poetry Club for Mo Beasley's UrbanErotika.
