Roots drummer Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson led a session called Questlove's Superjam at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival this weekend in Manchester, Tenn., and the surprise guest was D'Angelo, the much-loved neo-soul singer who had not played a gig in the U.S. for 12 years.  

D'Angelo, who is on the schedule for the Made In America festival in Philadelphia on Labor Day weekend and the subject of this GQ magazine profile, played a 90 minute set filled with covers of Led Zeppelin, Ohio Players, The Time (who's trenchcoat-wearing Jesse Johnson played guitar), Jimi Hendrix and Beatles covers. One of them, "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window," is below. the quality, shot from the side of the stage, is not great. If better clips show up, I'll post them. The audio is here, via OkayPlayer.com and funkit.com.

UPDATE: Higher quality video of the last two minutes of the jam added below.
