Arrow Meshell Ndegeocello's "Dance of the Infidels", out on June 21st

Meshell Ndegeocello, the funky electric bassist who originally signed to Maverick Records in 1993, will release her first all-jazz outing, "Dance of the Infidels," June 21 via Shanachie.

Ndegeocello's electric all-star jazz collective, Spirit Music Jamia, features such guests as Kenny Garrett, Jack DeJohnette, Oliver Lake, Don Byron and Soulive's Neal Evans, as well as vocalists Cassandra Wilson, Lalah Hathaway and Sabina (of the Brazilian Girls).

"I didn't want to be a leader," Ndegeocello tells Billboard. "I just wanted to play bass and highlight the band. I was writing compositions with melodic figures and chord changes that lent themselves to this kind of music. It was a natural process for me. I wrote the cells, the improvisers played on them without rehearsals, and the tunes took no more than two takes."
