Meshell Ndegeocello: The Songs Of Prince, Faithfully Reimagined
Meshell Ndegeocello covering Prince... After hearing her freak Dirty Mind a couple of years ago, I knew that she and her band would be up to the task. Let's hope there's a live album released

Marvin Gaye - What's Going On / What's Happening Brother
with the Funk brothers laying in the cut, Brother James Jamerson's bass on the low end theory, some conga drums and above all Marvin's beautiful voice. A live, jazzy soulful masterpiece.

Jimmy Fallon's house band, the Roots, is one reason the show is a must-see
After finessing the Smurfs' theme, it's on to Zapp's "Computer Love" for another guest, Joshua Topolsky, editor of tech-blog Engadget. But by the time the bridge rolls around, the Roots have transformed the tune into something all their own.

"This is how a song gets made," Thompson says, flashing a gigantic smile, his drumsticks slowly bending the Zapp beat into a Roots beat. "We'll [mess] around, then we'll Rubik's Cube it."

Meshell's Moods
I'll get to the whys, wherefores and textures of their sound but should get the hyperbole off my chest upfront. Simply put, Meshell NdegeOcello's band is the coldest band since The Revolution circa 1985.

Meshell Ndegeocello & friends perform in Seattle
The coldest band since The Revolution perform in Seattle - this is more laidback than the Oakland show which was fierce and emotional.

Badu mixes it up onstage
review of last night's concert. The Roots should never be an opening act, they should have been the main event especially with Erykah Badu in full eclectic mode ala Zap Mama. Good concert though.

Jose James live concert
akin to Bilal in that there is a hip-hop aesthetic and thus he's thoroughly modern but this is a jazz singer with a soul vibe rather than Bilal's soul singer with a jazz vibe. Sounds like Johnny Hartman, Jon Lucien and Andy Bey.

Long live Prince's purple reign
the priapic purple enigma. He's in a trademark salacious mood, prancing around the stage and flirting with his microphone stand, his dancers, his band and his fans. He is coaxing extraordinary sounds out of his guitar (also purple). He is in complete cont

Nothing compares 2 Prince
sounds like a rousing start to the man's 3 week engagement at the millennium dome... Maceo is guesting it seems... 6 hours including the aftershow... bootlegs anyone? "He makes his contemporaries look like pusillanimous amateurs."

Cooking with Rokia Traoré
I mention all this because in many ways, Rokia Traoré's performance with her eight piece band last Friday reminded me of those landmark albums, in conception, in attitude and especially in the flawless execution.

Amel Larrieux Breaking Through
