If there is a band whose name is inscribed in gold letters in the legend of hip-hop and has been accompanying its destiny since 1987, it is indeed the legendary crew of "The Roots". Around the talents of its two founders, Black Thought and Questlove, the protean Philadelphian band has been able to differentiate itself by offering music that breaks away from hip-hop, without ever claiming (or being able) to be sidelined from it. The "Roots" have managed to impose a style in which jazz is the most significant and most recognizable source of inspiration. Musically, the jazz is syncopated, the rhythm clearly sequenced to imprint the beat.
"The Roots" masters all the codes and knows all the notes, linking sounds without transition with incredible ease. There are no boundaries to the groove of Black Thought, the band’s rapper, gliding with virtuosity from low to high, in concert with the brass, drums, and electric guitar. Music played live and composed collectively, with an original sample work since it is their own takes recorded in the studio that are used as a musical base. Add to this the list of artists who have requested the services of the band (Erykah Badu, Cody Chestnutt, Al Green, Jill Scott, Elvis Costello, D’Angelo...) and you will have understood that with "The Roots", "Jazz à Juan" welcomes preeminence.
