Meshell Ndegeocello is the inaugural winner of the Best Alternative Jazz Album Grammy Award for her Blue Note debut The Omnichord Real Book!
This marks Ndegeocello’s second Grammy win. In 2021, Ndegeocello’s Robert Glasper and H.E.R. collaboration “Better Than I Imagined” won the Grammy for Best R&B Song.
“The Omnichord Real Book is a visionary, expansive, and deeply jazz-influenced album that marks the start of a new chapter in her career. Following her 2018 album Ventriloquism, Meshell returns with an album of new original material that taps into a broad spectrum of her musical roots. The Omnichord Real Book was produced by Josh Johnson and features a wide range of guest artists including Jason Moran, Ambrose Akinmusire, Joel Ross, Jeff Parker, Brandee Younger, Julius Rodriguez, Mark Guiliana, Cory Henry, Joan As Police Woman, Thandiswa, and others.” – Blue Note Records
