be curious to hear what he's like in concert as his mix of R&B beats
and roots-rock on the last couple of records is as satisfying a
synthesis as any of its kind. (In some ways it reminds me of when Joe
Henry started incorporating R&B and jazz into his sound, though I'm
trying to imagine Ornette Coleman sitting in with Prophet!)
Tangentially, I hear that Mi'Shell Ndegeocello (Henry's bassist on
_Scar_) has a new album coming out soon. She's one of those artists
whose sound varies widely from album to album (_Bitter_ was downright
folky) and I'm curious if anyone's had the opportunity to hear the new
one and can say what it sounds like?
