Gather round, boys and girls. Soul elder Bobby Womack presided over the musical proceedings on the set of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon this past Friday, and I'm happy to say I was there to see it live. That performance marks the very first time I called in my Okayplayer chit to gain entrance to the taping of LNWJF and I have to say I put my money down on the right number. All I can really say to add to these clips of Bobby and band (Damon Albarn, XL Records Richard Russell, Jaleel Bunton of TVOTR, Kwes and Remi Kabaka) performing the title track from their album Bravest Man In The Universe, along with the uplifting "Jubilee" and a dissonant, feedback-y  version of "Whatever Happened To The Times" is this: goose-bumps. I would like to say I left with a lightened heart but the truth is I left feeling pretty mad at what passes for singing in this generation. Watch below and after the jump and then purchase Bravest Man In The Universe on iTunes.
