Meshell Ndegeocello, ‘Pour une âme souveraine: A Dedication to Nina Simone’
Nina Simone wasn’t interested in genre so such as essence. She often took familiar jazz, pop, blues, and folk songs and turned them inside out, ending up with an interpretation distinctly her own. Meshell Ndegeocello, a bassist, singer, and songwriter who also knows her way in and out of various styles, takes a similar approach on her enlightened new homage to Simone.
