your soul! All persons blessed to hear her melodies are spiritually
uplifted out of their seats onto the dance floor!!! Adrienne is an
untapped resource whom ultimately will be discovered and brought to

|As her illustrious musical journey continues to
unfold it is already clear that Adrienne Nims has made a distinct
and indelible mark. A smooth force with the keen ability to connect all the elements of her surroundings into a wonderful arrangement of melodic bliss, Adrienne is an artist in the truest form. One that understands that art
is a necessity not a luxury. Her prolific body of work could speak for itself, but time and time again she delivers
on the grandest of stages with finely tuned performances that could evoke the spirits of jazz legends past. She moves with such grace allowing herself to make her presence felt without being ostentatious. Displaying a range
that is unparalleled, she seems to flourish even more alongside her dynamic band Spirit Wind. At the core of her music lies the very fabric of Adrienne's soul and the beautifully crafted sounds that emerge are the end result. Teddy T.
|Adrienne's music is
magnetically strong. With her three saxophones slung around her body
Adrienne in performance is as much a visual phonenomenon as musical experience. Her body rhythms flow to
the fluid syncopation of Brazil, Africa and the driving tempo of hip hop as she teases the full melodious range
from her many instruments. The trills of her flute ride high and free over the rhythm of percussion.
With her infectious musical flair and compelling physical appearance and prowess, Adrienne more than entertains; her energy lifts one to another level of enjoyment of performing musical arts and one's own potential for being
fully alive. Her musical expression and commanding presence in combination make all background recede into incidence...Chip H.
|I just wanted to take a
moment to tell you how much Spirit Wind is a part
of our night time zoo experience. My husband and I go to the zoo 3-5
nights a week and one of the sweetest parts of our evenings is hearing
as we walk through the zoo's lushness. At times the music is so haunting, at others bright and effervescent, but it
is always beautiful. Many nights we don't stop in front of you, but we give ourselves up completely to the music in
the shadows of bamboo or at the edge of a waterfall. I think of it as a private call and response that we share with you. We are attentive and appreciative of the joy and virtuosity of Spirit Wind.
|A Spiritual connection to
the earth embodied as a gift through musical performance and dance...
in my lifetime have I been fortunate enough to experience the likes of
Adrienne Nims. To say that she embodies a combination of God-given
talent and passion in her art, cannot really capture the essence of her
uniqueness! I can honestly say that I have never been in the presence
of someone who has the capacity to become as-one with her instruments
as as she does. She is able to coax and caress tones and nuances from
them that transport to an ethereal plane. I try never to miss one of
her performances in the area because I feel so transfixed and
transformed each and every time! We are blessed to have her in San
Diego, and I wish for her the success and appreciation she deserves
both here, and elsewhere...Tom C.
