Bilal x The Roots On Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
Bilal joined The Roots onstage yesterday at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform the Steely Dan classic “Black Cow” at the top of the show. Bilal’s performances with The Roots remain a homecoming of sorts, as the Philly natives team relatively often in the interest of shutting down a live performance or two. In this particular instance, Bilal flexes his proficiency for scatting toward the end of the performance. His voice darts around the ceiling of his bright tenor falsetto with ease as The Roots maintain a baseline of cooled out funk that only serves to accentuate the jam. The performance is also highlighted by a dope keyboard solo. Check the footage below. Purchase Bilal’s latest LP A Love Surreal via iTunes.
