Video: Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Ensemble Feat Bilal – "Someday We’ll All Be Free"
I think I am the last in Europe who has posted this video: Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Ensemble Feat Bilal – ‘Someday We’ll All Be Free’ from Donny Hathway. I saw this great performance on a Dutch and an English music blog. So I jacked it from the London based music blog http://pinboardblog.com. A great blog by the way!
About the video they wrote: "The city of Los Angeles was blessed with a free concert from the Miguel Artwood-Ferguson Ensemble on July 23rd 2010. Recently known for his work on Mochilla’s “Suite for Ma Dukes” project, where he arranged and conducted music from the late, great J.Dilla for a full orchestra. Ferguson assembled an all-star cast of musicians and special guests featuring artists such as Flying Lotus, Aloe Blacc, Bilal, Stephen ‘Thudercat’ Bruner, Chris ‘Daddy’ Dane and many more for a special evening at the Grand Performance California Plaza.
The video up top and the download below is of an amazing arrangement from Miguel Atwood-Ferguson of Donny Hathaway’s CLASSIC ‘Someday We’ll All Be Free’ featuring Bilal on vocals. Yea – you read right – Bilal singing Donny Hathway with a full on Orchestra."
