New from Me'Shell: "Dance of the Infidels"

Me'Shell N'degeOcello's Dance of the Infidels winning rave reviews from jazz critics. Be among the first to hear sound clips here.
The season's changed; who can believe it's already October? But suddenly, Neo Soul fans feel the music landscape's heating up, given the warm reception the jazz world is giving Meshell Ndegeocello, whose Dance of the Infidels debuted recently.

And in she apparently flits, like the graceful butterfly adorning her new CD art. Like the monarch, Meshell's metamorphosis seems complete, with her drawing startling, new comparisons to no less than Miles Davis and Weather Report.
Read a glowing review of Me'Shell Ndegeocello's new CD here.
This is not the soul surviving Me'Shell NdegeOcello we knew, but a heavy-weight diva who doesn't even sing or drop spoken-word science on this set. Rather, this fierce bassist orchestrates the likes of Cassandra Wilson and Lalah Hathaway in providing the jazz vocals.

As composer-producer, she also brought in legendary drummer Jack DeJohnette, whose collaborations read like a Who's Who including Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea.

Whether you're a highly discriminating jazz fan and/or a die-hard Meshell fanatic, don't miss these massive CD reviews in which Meshell's already winning critical acclaim:

I've had it for a while but recently been listening to it. Wrote a whole post just about Aquarium. Good stuff! Different.

I looked for your post on Aquarium, but didn't find it (yet). I'll check some more later this evening, or let me know... Is it archived in August/September?

Hate to tell you, Cane, but I had to give Meshell's "Bitter" CD away. That thing depressed the shit out of me!

Well, there was one track on there that I like a lot, but I just couldn't handle it overall.
