Miss Meshelle Goddamn!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pour une ame souveraine (For a sovereign soul) - A dedication to Nina Simone (Audio CD)
La N'dogocello has taken yet another adventurous journey in this salute to the late great La Simone. Meshelle has never rested on her laurels, six releases in. "Peace Beyond Passion", her sophomore release remains her most successful album commercially and critically. While some fans, me included, yearn for a sequel, Meshelle keeps making unexpected turns from the acoustic simplistic "Bitter" to the hip hop infected "Cookie: The Anthropological Mixtape" to the jazz-fumed "Dance of the Infidels", her intense collection of works refuses to be classified into one box. Pre-press materials stress that this is NOT an album of Simone covers. It more or less captures the essence of the soul of an artist of N'dogocello's ilk.
