It's undeniable that The Roots are the best band playing on all of the MANY late night talk shows, and Jimmy Fallon got supremely lucky when they agreed to the job. All you need to do is watch one episode to see that. They play interesting intro songs relevant to the individual guests, they Slow Jam the news, they make up songs on the spot. On Friday's show they showed how Questlove set a world record for the most afro picks in one afro. They're awesome.
Last week they performed a song from their upcoming album, and it's fantastic. I can't wait to get it.
