The Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans (CAC) continues its 2014 -15 Performing Arts Season with singer-bassist Meshell Ndegeocello, who returns to New Orleans with her band to perform her critically-acclaimed new album, Comet, Come to Me-an introspective, unwavering look into memory, lost love, and human fallacies. Traces of go-go, hip hop, R&B, new wave, and punk can be found in this most recent album, an homage to Nina Simone, whom she considers a kindred musical spirit. Selections from Comet, Come to Me will be performed at the CAC October 10, 2014 at 7:30pm.

"Comet, Come to Me was a little labor but a lot of love. It was made with my favorite collaborators, and it felt good to channel the sounds in my mind after having Nina in residence for a while."                                                               

-Meshell Ndegeocello 

 

Meshell Ndegeocello-a bass player above all else, brings her warm, melodic groove to all of her work and has appeared alongside the Rolling Stones, Madonna, Alanis Morrisette, James Blood Ulmer, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Tony Allen, John Medeski, Billy Preston, and Chaka Khan. She credits Sting, Jaco Pastorius, Family Man Barrett, and Stevie Wonder as her major influences. Ndegeocello was the first woman to be featured on the cover ofBass Player magazine and remains one of few women to write the music, sing the songs, and lead the band. 

"Meshell Ndegeocello's Comet, Come to Me is an adventure, and it's worth  

 tagging along."

-Los Angeles Times
 

"Comet, Come to Me is one of those rich works that keeps changing inside the listener's head-an often-quiet set of songs with intense staying power ..."
