I am an obsessed fan of Mizz Ndegechello. So my review should be considered pure praise. In late June of 2012, I saw her perform a few of these tracks live in an intimate setting at a NYC lounge. As I put the needle to the vinyl, I was put back in that dark club, surrounded by strangers, floating on the sound of her sultry voice. Me'Shell channels Nina with what seems to be an effort to raise the Jazz icon from the grave. It doesn't sound mimicked or rehearsed, which tends to happens with many remakes. It sounds like natural homage. Me'Shell puts her own melancholy touch on the works. The work is perfect. And every featured artist was matched perfectly to each song. Just perfect.
