Nikka Costa

10/9/2018 through 10/10/2018 | Dimitriou's Jazz Alley

Music Downtown

From the thirty-five second, funk-infused intro in her cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compare 2 U,” to the languorous string arrangements and unmistakable sultry vocals channeling Lena Horne in the eye of a hurricane on album closer “Stormy Weather,” Nikka Costa demonstrates on track after stunning track of her new album Nikka and Strings that, even when interpreting a song made famous by another artist, she is thrillingly and inescapably herself. Nikka and Strings is the latest milestone for an artist on a charmed and fascinating journey.
