I used to like the Roots just fine. I used to like John Legend just fine (except for his innuendo filled ode to nutmeg on the Colbert Holiday Special which was fantastic). I was familiar with both, just not star-struck by either. More like, “they’re cool. They’re good. Whatever.” But then I heard this song. The whole album is good but this song is really good. And being able to watch them jam out makes it better for some reason.
Another tidbit having nothing to do with the preceding. I like the cello. It sounds cool. I also like Led Zepplin. They sound cool too. Beethoven was a genius. It comes off a bit corse, but he also sounded cool. No wonder the combination of the three sounds cool.
