WOW!!! Me'Shell Ndegeocello


Super 8

Recommended Posts

It's taken me some time to find out that Me'Shell Ndegeocello was the bass player with Arrested Development on a 1992 rerun of Saturday Night Live I saw a few months ago. I heard them play "Tennessee" and was just blown away by the absolute bad-ass funk coming from the bass-player.

 

"Wow! Whose playing that?!"

"Is that a girl?"

"Is that the same chick that did that cool bass riff and sang with John Melloncamp on "Wild Night"?"

 

Yup, sure is...

 

Turns out she not only played bass on the SNL performance, she also directed the band! Wow, not bad at all!

 

I figured you folx here in the Lowdown forum would know all about her. But for those of you who don't, you have GOT to hear her play! What a cool approach! I wish I could describe what she was doing on "Tennessee"... Maybe some of you know what I'm talking about. I don't know if she was on a fretless or not, but she was 'pulling' and 'pushing' her intonation all over the place, and it sounded great! Very, very edgy. I don't know how else to describe it...

 

Okay, I'm gonna shut up now and let you bass players do the talking... :wave:
