Aloe Blacc is one of our favorite artists of the moment here at The Jazz Line. Though he is known mostly for his smooth Soul/R’n’B vocals, the diversity of styles he puts on display for fans is remarkable; and the video below is testament to that.
Blacc, real name Egbert Nathaniel Dawkins III, took a trip to Germany for the MMM festival in Berlin, closing the first night of the festival. After some persuasion, he promised to put on a little post-show show for any eager festival-goers who were willing to stick around for an after-hours Blogotheque jam session.
Aloe was then led into the lobby of the MichelBerger Hotel, where he performed a fantastic rendition of his song, ‘Green Lights’.
