Meshell Ndegeocello in Indiana / A lost Indianapolis jazz classic from Steve Allee
November 15, 2023
This week on Cultural Manifesto listen to an interview with the Grammy-winning musician Meshell Ndegeocello - she’ll be performing at the Palladium on November 18th. Meshell will discuss her connection to Indiana artists - including John Mellencamp, Etheridge Knight, and Hanna Benn.
We’ll also explore a lost recording from the Indianapolis jazz musician and composer Steve Allee. In 1983, Steve composed "Centennial Salute: A Musical Tribute To The Indianapolis Museum Of Art”, an orchestral suite featuring over 70 musicians - including members of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and jazz legends of Indiana Avenue.
