Annie Lennox and ‘Nostalgia’ a must-see on ‘Great Performances’

In February, Annie Lennox put a spell on viewers of the 57th Grammy Awards in mid-February. She was dressed simply in a loose black shirt and pants. Her platinum blonde hair was cut short.

Lennox didn’t need to show flesh, to dance or to push boundaries in any way to impress music lovers. Instead, she used her voice to cast a spell.

Instead of making rock music, now she’s gone back to jazz classics. We’re all lucky for this bit of “Nostalgia” which is the name of her most recent album. If you don’t have this Grammy-nominated album and even if you do, then you’ll want to see this concert on PBS Great Performances which is currently VoD on PBS. This performance originally was aired on 3 April 2015. The video expires on 30 April 2015.
