It’s Easy To ‘Still Care’ About D’Angelo & Questlove

Last night it seemed as if all of my NYC peeps on Twitter were at the Questlove and D'Angelo pop-up show at Brooklyn Bowl. While the closest I was getting to New York City was by watching Love & Hip Hop and Black Ink Crew on VH1, my timeline was overrun with envy-worthy updates and jealousy-inducing Instagram pics of Questo and the unicorn of soul himself at their Brothers In Arms live set. The show itself was intimate and simple -- with Questlove on drums and D'Angelo on piano and vocals -- yet quite complex with the duo performing a selection of D's originals blended in with a carefully curated set of covers. These two gave the Soulquarians treatment to cuts by Funkadelic, Bobby Womack, Prince and many more, including a lovely rendition of The S.O.S. Band's slow jammer "Tell Me If You Still Care." Our friends over at Okayplayer caught this moment of musical magic on video, and watching this is the second best thing to being there (or at least that's what I'm telling myself). D'Angelo exhibited his range, singing both the male and female lead parts to near perfection, and is continuing to assure us that he's still got it. I don't know if this was just a one-time show or if these two talented gents will be doing this again, but if so I can only pray that I'm in the audience next time.
