From the Soundboard is usually a show that focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. WBAI is still in Winter Fund Drive mode. Which means that producers (like me) will be asking for tax deductible financial support so that you (the listener) can continue to enjoy WBAI’s programming (like From the Soundboard). On March 19, as we continue to acknowledge Women History Month we will focus on bassist extraordinaire, Meshell Ndegeocello.
“You never know what type of world you’re going to be stepping into when you listen to a new Meshell Ndegeocello album. Those who have followed her career right from her 1993 masterpiece Plantation Lullabies (which is one of the most overlooked and underrated albums of the ‘90s), knows that Meshell rarely, if ever, repeats herself. In fact, this lack of repetition is sometimes so jarring that it’s difficult to follow the path she took from one album to the next. See, for instance, the R&B/soul album Peace Beyond Passion and how it was followed by the super acoustic folk/pop album Bitter, and then how that was followed by the spoken-word hip-hop mixtapeCookie. It’s head spinning”. [Enio Chiola – Popmatters.com]
