Drummer/Producer Ahmir ‚?uestlove‘ Thompson is a Quincy Jones for our times: a living link between the digital science of modern Hip Hop and the flesh-and-blood textures of vintage R&B. Besides a pivotal role in the Soulquarians not to mention the broader Philly scene, ?uestlove co-founded the Roots, who rejuvenated Hip Hop in an instrumental flurry that flits effortlessly between Jazz, Funk, Rock and Reggae – even Disco. Meanwhile ?uestlove’s collaborations with such artists as D’Angelo, Jay Z, and Common have reasserted the importance of real-time playing in a style dominated by sampling and programming. He’s also a mastermind behind crucial heads’ website okayplayer.com. This Philadelphian moves feet and minds, with music that’s pitier than a licorice twig.
