?uest pops up to talk about the first time he & D’Angelo met!

WOW! Nelson George meets D’Angelo via the Red Bull Academy… this is a must view… a conversation that’s a joy to listen to. And it leaves you hungry for a whole bunch of new D’Angelo stuff live and on record.

It seems crazy that 14 years have passed since ‘Voodoo’. It seems ironic, that the most recent D’Angelo record to get a big-up in Billboard is the live set from his 1995 gig at the Jazz Cafe in Camden Town. It was classic session and it’s cool that the album is now available worldwide and not just in Japan but there’s been a lot of water under the bridge since then and the seemingly troubled period post Voodoo wasn’t touched on by Nelson in the interview. That said, I’m sat here listening to D’Angelo live in Stockholm, which was released in 2012, and it feels good. It’s tight, funky….Pino Palladino on the bass… and the horns are just plain HORNY! Mo’ D’Angelo please!
