Meshell Ndegeocello's CV may include collaborations with the eclectic company of Herbie Hancock, Basement Jaxx, Robert Glasper and Madonna, yet with every project she remains resolutely herself. Whether it's through guest spots or her own releases, Meshell's sound has always been her hallmark. In 1993, Madonna's ﬂedgling Maverick Records released Plantation Lullabies, Meshell's debut which perfectly highlighted that sound: dual pleasures of baritone singing and spoken word with her distinctive bass-playing washing over and through you. For more than 20 years and 11 albums, this restless artist has touched upon genre after genre without sacriﬁcing her identity or style. Utilizing her laptop as a new instrument, this year Meshell plans to release a new album that aims to fuse both politics and dancing.

Talk Music Talk Spotify Playlist: The Portable Meshell
It's no surprise that several past TMT guests have mentioned Meshell as an inﬂuence. I previously made a playlist that covered music from all of her solo albums. At nearly 2 hours, it's an amazing survey of both talent and ingenuity. Enjoy! https://open.spotify.com/user/therattlecat/playlist/3r26Tu7wrgE4EE3SA0jt9P
