From The Vault: D’Angelo Live At The North Sea Jazz Festival On The Voodoo Tour

With anticipation for D'Angelo's return to the stage next month in Europe at code red epidemic thirst level proportions, how would it feel to get your hands on a live recording of one of his shows from the Voodoo Tour? Silly question, I know. But way back in 2000, D'Angelo's set at the North Sea Jazz Festival in the Netherlands was bootlegged, and since that time it's been floating around on and offline. It's once again making the rounds with renewed interested in Mr. Archer thanks to this little European tour that he'll be embarking on soon. Needless to say, I can't wait to hear and see those live sessions, but until that time this download of this incredible concert is tiding me over just swell. Recorded on July 16, 2000 when D'Angelo took his Voodoo on the road with The Soultronics (featuring Questlove on drums and Anthony Hamilton on supporting vocals) backing him, this is a must-own for any D fan. Videos of this concert are also a must-watch to see the artist in fine form and all of the energy that he and the band exuded on stage. Listen to "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" below, hit the bounce to watch the complete concert, and bounce on over to Funk It for the free download for your own personal collections. I know that this was recorded over a decade ago, but I'm hoping, wishing, and praying that D'Angelo hasn't lost this fire. The game has truly been missing this.

Props to Funk It for compiling this video footage and painstakingly syncing it up with the audio.
