    MeShell NdegeOcello - Montreux Jazz Festival

    And BTW, Ndegeocello (no H). Pronouced N-Day-Gay-O-Cello, meaning Free as a Bird in swahili. Just posting that for everyone else's benifit since a lot of folks seem to pronouce it wrong lol.

    The Spirit of Music CD was ready for release about a year ago but the US label that was going to put it out (Verve) backed out at the last minute. Sunnyside will finally release it here this summer.

    It has been released overseas, you can find import copies for about $30. I'll wait, thank you.
     
  5. V talented player!! MeShell is one of the very few bassists who I instantly recognise when she plays!
     
  6. you know, i find that funny, cos she's trying to not get that when people hear her play they dont recognise its her......but i love her jazz's
     
  7. all I've got is her 2nd record 'Peace Beyond Passion', but that's enough for me to say...

    she rocks!!

    Great tone and feel. An extremely funky player.
     
  8. that was the first album of hers i got, then i got comfort woman a while ago, wasnt really into then, but its finally starting to grow on me.....but i got cookie not long and thats definately my favourite album...

    i downloaded that spirit of music at college today, and i watched a little of it, gotta wait for a mate to put it on cd for me, but dayum...i loved it
