Description
This remarkable tribute was on many critics' Top 10 lists of 2012, including those of the Boston Globe: "Simone was an iconoclast, practically a genre unto herself. Jazz, blues, folk, pop—she did it all, and on her own terms. Ndegeocello's salute to her legacy was equally quixotic, deconstructing the songs and rebuilding them as soulful elegies to a woman who would have appreciated such fierceness." Our favorite: the ravishing "Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood."

"As the first guitar lick beckons … it's clear that some strange and beautiful alchemy is at work…. The bassist, vocalist, rapper, composer and producer utilizes each of her talents to send a reinvigorating jolt down the spine of Simone's songs. Her penchant for percussive, syncopated grooves sends 'Suzanne' and 'House of the Rising Sun' into an uncharted stratosphere. Her vocals are often cool where Simone's were hot, a contrast that oozes postmodern verve."—Washington Post

"'Turn Me On' and 'Feeling Good,' seductive and slow as molasses, sound like something Sade would record. 'Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood' shimmers as a soulful lover's lament."—Boston Globe
