Questlove and Bobby McFerrin are set to meld their encyclopedic minds as they take to the Town Hall stage in NYC for an episode of the Blue Note Jazz Festival June 13th. The Jazz Festival will take over NYC this June, bringing some the greatest minds in the musical world together, including Aretha Franklin, Marcus Miller, Christian McBride, Ramsey Lewis, Reggie Watts, José James and a slew of others to compliment our fateful general and the vocal contortionist’s “Musical Dialogue.”
With McFerrin’s extensive list of collaborations (Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Grover Washington Jr to name a few) and Questlove’s relentless pursuit of being the most efficacious drummer the world over, the possibilities are simply staggering. You can catch the full schedule for the Blue Note Jazz Festival’s star-packed line-up over on their site, where you can also cop tickets to all of the events. Blue Note’s getting the summer started in blaze of glory, so if you’re local to NYC, be sure to make your way to one of these ill showcases and then go home and brag about it to your music junky friends. For a peek at what the Thompson/McFerrin team is capable of, just take a gander at that ill exchange they had a few months ago on The Tonight Show.
