The Roots - Break You Off

The Roots are one of the few contemporary groups that still feature a whole company of instrumentalists. With a complete horns section backing up the original 5 members, they are as good as it gets live. In fact, I have seen them live two times and will be seeing them again for the third time at Outside Lands Music Festival in August.

They have a wide variety of music, including a collaborative album that they did with John Legend. On Wake Up, they remastered a number of classic songs, including hits from Curtis Mayfield and Bill Withers. Prior to that, they released Phrenology, Seed and Seed 2.0. All three of these albums are impressive in their own right. The rest of their work is also great, but those have got to be my favorites.

Today I have "Break You Off" for your listening pleasures. It is one of my all-time favorite Roots songs, up there with the likes of "The Seed 2.0" and "Rolling in the Heat." So here come The Roots, Enjoy!
