Videos from this year’s Winter NAMM show are starting to roll in, and this one really caught my ear. Cory Henry of Snarky Puppy performed at the ROLI event with his band The Funk Apostles, including bassist MonoNeon.
The band spins out their own jaw-dropping versions of The Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back” and Marvin Gaye’s “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)” that leaves the crowd stunned. MonoNeon’s sense of groove matched to drummer TaRon Lockett’s beat gives the 20-minute clip a bounce that’s sure to put a smile on your face.
Be sure to put on headphones for this one.
