Slow Jamming The Roots

Slow Jamming The Roots

The Roots' How I Got Over is out, and my review is here. I spent the day with the Philadelphia band on the set of the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show on release day. That story is here. Above is a shot of the band rehearsing backstage at 30 Rock with Herbie Hancock. Below are a trio of clips from the show: The Slow Jamming The News schtick featuring Brain Williams, a performance of "Dear God 2.0," with Jim James, and a Ladysmith Snack Mambazo ode to Ben & Jerry's.
