This Tiny Desk Concert was a convergence of art and soul, mixing politics with heart. Common’s choice of songs dealt with incarceration as the new slavery, imagined a time where women rule the world and honored the man he looked up to all his life, his father. For this occasion Common put together a special six-piece band of close friends that includes the great Robert Glasper, with his eloquent and delicate touch, on keyboards and Derrick Hodge, whose music spans from hip-hop to folk and has made a big imprint on the world of jazz, on bass. Common also asked his longtime friend and collaborator Bilal to sing on two songs. The performance includes three brand new songs, along with one classic, „I Used To Love H.E.R.“
I Used To Love H.E.R.
Letter To The Free
The Day The Women Took Over
Little Chicago Boy
Common ist uns neulich schon gemeinsam mit Stevie Wonder positiv aufgefallen.
