Friday Flashback: Meshell Ndegeocello

This week, we revisit the sounds of Meshell Ndegeocello and her sixth studio album titled The Spirit Music Jamia: Dance of the Infidel from 2005. The song of choice from this critically acclaimed album is "Aquarium", that features vocals from Sabina Sciubba, who fronts the electronica band Brazilian Girls.

The entire album is a very intricate piece of work that should be on your list of "must haves". On Billboard, it peaked at #4 on the Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. Other noted vocalists that are featured are Cassandra Wilson and Lalah Hathaway. A long list of gifted Jazz musicians were on hand to help aid Ndegeocello in recording the project.
