About This Performance

The legendary Roots crew are one of the most vibrant and versatile hip-hop groups of all time, legendary for their instrumental prowess and for their ability to emulate pretty much any sound from any era – from smooth, buttery soul to booming rap. The house band for Jimmy Fallon since 2009, they’ve built their commanding live show around jazzy, soul-driven grooves and old-school charismatic hip-hop. The wildly versatile bassist Christian McBride brings his Grammy®-winning 21st-century big band for a set of tight, swinging jazz.
