The Roots having proved themselves the world's premier backing band via years of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon performances and collaborative projects (with everyone from John Legend to Elvis Costello), no new team-up should come as a surprise. Questlove & Co. align here with My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, currently riding high in the wake of an exquisite psych-pop solo effort, Regions of Light and Sound of God. We expect funked-up bliss to be in store at this Celebrate Brooklyn! benefit gig.
