Since D’Angelo made his unexpected return last year and hit almost every big stage, fans everywhere have been holding their breath for the crooner to finally release his new album. On Monday night, D’Angelo and Questlove held an intimate jam session at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl for the ‘Soulquarians: Brothers In Arm’ show. According to Billboard the concert ‘teetered towards the religious.’ The longtime friends and collaborators revitalized any doubtful fans anticipation of D’Angelo’s return.
The one-hour set was an inside peek at the duo’s studio sessions. Both performed a 10-song mashup of the singer’s vintage to virgin cuts (“Go Back to the Thing,” “Really Love”) and funkadelic-soul classics (Bobby Womack’s “Woman’s Gotta Have It,” S.O.S. Band’s “Tell Me If You Care,” Prince’s “New Position”), transitioning from song to song with just a swift strike to a key and a seductive groan.
