Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

MeShell Ndegeocello

The Spirit Music Jamia: Dance of the Infidel

2005-06-15

Bassist MeShell Ndegeocello makes the jump to Shanachie Records for the deepest jazz exploration of her career.

For the new disc, MeShell is content to provide the bass groove while acting as band leader for a host of ground-breaking musicians. Vocals are provided by Cassandra Wilson, Lalah Hathaway and “Brazilian Girl” Sabina. Luminaries like Don Byron, Jack de Johnette, Kenny Garrett, and Oliver Lake help lay down the funk.
