      EVENT DETAILS
      Meshell Ndegeocello and James "Blood" Ulmer's Memphis Blood featuring Vernon Reid

      Join us for an evening with two distinctly inventive artists. Renowned bassist, singer, songwriter and 10-time Grammy nominee Meshell Ndegeocello writes, records and performs unpredictable, boundary-defying music in rock, jazz, funk, soul and more. Her killer band features Deantoni Parks on drums, Jebin Bruni on keys and Chris Bruce on guitar.
      Meshell's 10th album-Pour une ame souveraine (For a sovereign soul) - A dedication to Nina Simone-arrives October 9. It is a luminous collection of songs that pays homage to a music legend and features special guests Sinead O'Conner, Lizz Wright, Valerie June, Toshi Reagon and Cody ChesnuTT.�Listen to a track�from the coming album at NPR's "All Songs Considered" blog.�

      Harmolodic guitarist, blues singer and composer James "Blood" Ulmer brings his thrilling Memphis Blood crew featuring master axman Vernon Reid (of Living Color), along with a full band featuring violin, mandolin, keys, harmonica, drums and bass. Ulmer draws upon a spectrum of music forms free jazz to deep-funk to bebop to avant-soul and beyond. The New York Times calls Mr. Ulmer's guitar tone "... a gasping, metallic cry, that expresses everything from out-in-the-woods loneliness to nail-chewing, urban anxiety."
