“Astonishing.” —Boston Globe
A pioneer of neo-soul, Meshell Ndegeocello is unmistakable for the dazzle of her bass playing and the dark, stoic clarity of her voice. In this special performance, Ndegeocello pays tribute to the high priestess of soul, Nina Simone, whose crooning set the jazz and blues world ablaze with a voice like no other. Called “the best kind of dedication” (AllMusic), Ndegeocello invokes the classic inspiration of Simone with simmering interpretations of her most famous songs (Feelin’ Good; Real Real; To Be Young, Gifted, and Black) as well as songs from Ndegeocello’s own musical catalogue.
Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President's Initiative for Diversity.
