Audio: Questlove’s Bonnaroo Superjam Features D’Angelo

All sorts of rumors swirled yesterday about who would join host Questlove at the annual Bonnaroo Superjam. A little after midnight Bonnaroovians got their answer when the drummer emerged along with his Roots band mates guitarist Captain Kirk Douglas and percussionist Frank Knuckles as well as keyboardist James Poyser (Jay-Z, Aretha Franklin), bassist Pino Palladino (The Who), Eric Leeds on sax (Prince), guitarist Jesse Johnson (Morris Day & The Time) and vocalist Kendra Foster (D’Angelo, Parliment Funkadelic). But there was one more performer, the biggest surprise was the addition of soul superstar D’Angelo, who was making his first live appearance in the U.S. since 2000.
