Harlem hot grrrl and publisher of The Hotness site, Nicole Moore is re-launching her Hot Grrrls Cool Music series, with “The Gypsy Diaries,” by another hot grrrl singer Imani Uzuri, who will debut her sophomore solo CD at Red Rooster in Harlem.Check out her great post on The Hotness, as Nicole reflects on meeting Imani back in the day when she worked in Epic Records A&R department, through Harlem homeboy Greg Tate when she:
… walked into CB(GB)’s, Imani was already on stage and mid-song. “I need some calming water; I need some calming water,” she was singing, almost chanting. It was different. Mesmerizing. I didn’t even get in the door real good when the tears began to roll down my cheeks. It was a release I didn’t even realize I needed. Immediately, without fully understanding the breadth of Imani’s musicianship, I knew the spirit from which she sung. Her singing while grounded in the Blues and Spirituals, is also propelled by this exuberance for all that life has to offer—the good and the bad; the highs and the lows; the pretty and the gritty.
Be mesmerized by hot grrrl Imani Uzuri at Ginny’s Supper Club at Red Rooster in Harlem tomorrow Thursday, March 20, 2014, for only $20.
