Came across a 8 minute jam style version of The Roots’ classic “You Got Me” featuring Jill Scott. It shows how artists can make the live show an experience much more than a recorded song. Everyone enjoys shows where artists they take their songs, that everyone knows and loves, and moves them to the next level.
I love when a band intertwine lyrics and melodies from other songs or take the song on an adventure and come back when it feels right. I want to hear the hits, but I don’t need to hear them the exact way they were recorded.
Maybe I’m just partial to the zen like greatness of jamming, but wouldn’t you keep going to a show if things were always fresh? It’s a new experience every time.
Keep things fresh.
