Gilles Peterson // Must Have Album // #180

March 13, 2015

Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 Albums that every Gilles Peterson fan should have. The album this week is Bitter by Meshell Ndegéocello.

This album was released in 1999, on Maverick Records, it’s a delicate, sensual and incredibly bold piece of work, which proved that Ndegéocello is a master, not only within the realms of R&B and Funk, but also in Folk and experimental Jazz/Rock. The haunting vocals, well crafted lyrics and the well formulated arrangements make this a must have album.
