Soundbyte!


Happy Monday! My song today is absolutely beautiful to me. Its on the Love & Basketball soundtrack and its by an artist that i appreciate:


Me'Shelle Ndegocello - You make a fool of me

I think this song is haunting. Its one of those songs that i think is pure. What i mean is its uncluttered with excessive musical instruments and equalizers. Its a simple but oh so complex song. The words are amazing and Me'shelle's delivery makes it extra special. She doesnt shout or adlib. She just sings this song and i feel her. I really feel the strength of emotions behind her words.

Enjoy!

Amen...
You know I absolutely ADORE meshell's voice, I actually once flew to NewYork just to see her at the lincoln Jazz festival. (where she was supporting India Arie).

I've met her a few times, and that woman is all of 5 foot 0 inches... lol..but wow what a voice and when she plays bass guitar...
wow!.

@LB: I had a great weekend. I sent the song to you

@Diamond: hey ma...

@Soul: Somehow i knew you would be a fan. She is that little? She has so much attitude and comes off so strong, i always thought she was a tall tall woman. Yeah..When she plays her guitar, such a turn on.

erm I have a few pics from when I saw her at the Jazz cafe.
I was right up front.. I mean right in front of her...
I tell you her bass guitar is just slightly shorter than she is.

And that voice... oh my God..
I'll be honest I've done things to that music that 'I'm much too shy to say'
