Zigaboo Modeliste Will Join Erykah Badu, The Dap-Kings and Mark Ronson on Letterman

Meters drummer Zigaboo Modeliste will perform on The Show Show with David Letterman on February 14. The drummer—who was recently featured on the cover of Relix along with his classic funk band—will back Erykah Badu on “A La Modeliste.” Mark Ronson and members The Dap-Kings will also help back Badu. The musicians recently recorded the show for the Re:Generation film project, which finds unique collaborations between many different musicians.

While in New York, the drummer will perform as part of Zigaboo Modeliste’s NY Foundation of Funk Revue at New York’s Highline Ballroom on February 15. For that gig, his group will consist of Andy Hess, Brian Mitchell, Jonathan Batiste and Jamie McLean. Modeliste is slated to be the special guest at San Francisco’s Ameoba Records today as part of the In The Soul Kitchen program.

Bow down. Ms Erykah truly gives you kwnloedge and food for the mind and soul. For those that don’t get where she is coming from….you, sadly, haven’t reached that level of enlightenment. Open your mind. Stop living in the little picture of this picture in picture we call life. Many won’t even get that statement. it’s ok though. for every one that doesn’t….five will. Peace and love.

I must say I’m a huge Badu fan as well. Probably more so than all of the above. She is deeinitfly the epitome of Soul music in my opinion and is very eclectic to say the least. Although the above weren’t some of my favorites, I deeinitfly have a bunch that are always on deck for a Supremely Soulful’ groove. I recommend Other Side of The Game , Danger , Bump It , I Want You , Orange Moon , Honey , Window Seat , Apple Tree , No Love , Next Lifetime and I think you get the point!
