Meshell Ndegeocello: Georgia Ave

I’m really enjoying the music (and videos) of Meshell Ndegeocello’s new album, The Omnichord Real Book.

Meshell just released the video for the album’s opening track. “Georgia Ave” is described as “a sonic homage to a main thoroughfare that runs north-south through Washington D.C. Many popular Black-owned businesses and restaurants dot the popular street as does the campus of Howard University. The song itself bounces with a stomping beat that alludes to go-go, the District’s indigenous music, as swarming organ riffs, percolating percussion, and West African-flavored guitar lines coalesce, perfectly articulating the African diasporic vibe that typifies Georgia Avenue.”

Kaveh Rastegar plays bass in the video.
