MESHELL NDEGEOCELLO

POUR UNE ÂME SOUVER- AINE: A DEDICATION TO NINA SIMONE [Naïve]

This tribute from one recording-industry maverick to another is a master class in paying homage while imbuing a classic set list with distinctive personality. Armed with killer old-school Jazz Bass tone and a team of superlative co-conspirators, Meshell brings 21st-century production and an intimate, unhurried pace to these standards while keeping the spirit of the originals intact. Simone would be proud.
