Meshell Ndegeocello, whom I indelibly remember seeing at the Horseshoe in Toronto, back, back, back in her very early days, is back with a gorgeous tribute to Nina Simone. This track, “Black Is The Color Of My True Love’s Hair” is identifiably Simone, one of her most popular in fact. But Meshell also makes it her own. She stripped it down and shot the video on her iPhone 4s!
The track is off her new album ‘Pour une Âme Souveraine: A Dedication to Nina Simone’ available on iTunes.
