Why See Jazz at the Bowl - The Roots?
Jazz-Pioneers The Roots Headline The Bowl
Alongside fellow icons and Jazz at the Bowl headliners Michael McDonald, Chaka Khan, Ivan Lins, Ben Harper and Neneh Cherry, genre bending hip hop pioneers the Roots take to the historic Hollywood Bowl for one special night only. From their early debut in 1993 right through to their current partnership with Jimmy Fallon as the late night talk show host's house band, the innovative collective continues to break boundaries, fusing rap with R&B, jazz and electronica, as well as a fearless political commentary on black culture and society in America today.
Formed in Philadelphia by founding members Ahmir 'Questlove' Thomson and Tariq 'Black Thought' Trotter, the outfit cut their teeth busking on the streets of Philly. Almost three decades, twelve studio albums and three Grammy Award-wins later, their devastating rhythmic flow has scaled the heights of cosmic-jazz funk and electronica thanks to a pioneering experimental spirit that consistently finds them on top of their game.
Performance date: 28 August 2019
