-A.S. Every single time I see the Roots, I leave impressed. Everybody knows that ?uestlove is one of the premier drummers around, and unarguably one of the best music minds of our time. The rest of the Roots crew might not be household names, but they deserve some recognition.Black Thought is the ring leader of the Roots crew circus.

Black Thought is a remarkable MC, leading the Roots crew through song after song with vigor. Captain Kirk Douglas wails on the guitar, and hits the high notes like it’s his job. Tuba Gooding Jr. parades his sousaphone around onstage, while keeping the crowds energy level as high as possible.

Most of the songs are the same throughout their set. You get a couple tracks off the new disc. Mix in some of the crowd pleasers like “The Seed (2.0).” Then you get the covers. Zack and I heard them do Sly & the Family Stone’s “Everybody is a Star” at Langerado, and it was just as good in Chicago at the Congress Theater. They even threw in a Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh “La Di Da Di.”
Captain Kirk Douglas and Tuba Gooding Jr. get down on stage as hard as their fans do in the crowd.

Probably my favorite cover was the Donna Summer “Love To Love You” into Guns N Roses “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” Douglas walked out onto the speakers in the photo pit and showed the crowd why people should know the name Captain Kirk Douglas. The Roots crew is just doing what they can to make sure you know their name.
