After 20 years in an industry that has called Meshell Ndegeocello everything from avant garde to a dying breed, what unquestionably remains is the fearsome bassist, prolific songwriter, and the creativity and curiosity of an authentic musical force. With that, she has earned critical acclaim, the unfailing respect of fellow players, songwriters and composers, and the dedication of her diverse, unclassifiable fans. Pianist Cecil Taylor is one of the most advanced improvisers in jazz. Ahmir Khalib Thompson, known professionally as Questlove, is an American drummer, DJ, music journalist, and record producer. Ayo, the multi-instrumentalist singer, songwriter, and producer, has achieved massive success, selling over 1.5 million albums in France and across Europe. Updating the rural blues tradition for the modern era, Guy Davis was among the most prominent ambassadors of African-American art and culture of his generation, additionally winning great acclaim for his work in the theater. Gregoire Maret from Geneva, Switzerland, developed his own unique harmonica sound and his versatile style enables him to play effortlessly across different musical genres. In 2005, Gregoire toured with the Pat Metheny Group, receiving a Grammy for Best Contemporary Jazz Album.
