We have been on a Bonobo kick lately here at the Astral Plane with the new Remix album set to come out on the 13th. I thought it would be good to show off the bands pure musical talent in this live video. If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of bands that can perform equally as well or better out of the studio. IE BadBadNotGood, Robert Glasper, Bonobo, and the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble are all bands I have posted on who, I believe, can perform even better in a live setting. With the help of a live band, Bonobo (Simon Green) plays live versions of his studio tracks with the help of a keyboardist, guitarist, saxophonist, a singer, and a drummer. To start us off, I thought it would be cool to show you guys the live version of the remix that we posted on yesterday. Here is a live version of their song Eyesdown Feat. Andreya Triana in Bracknell 2010.
Next up is one of my favorites, this is their song called Nothing Owed off of their Dial M for Monkey album released in 2003. The live version is on their Live Sessions EP released in 2005. I highly recommend getting this album as it showcases the talent of Simon Green and the band that plays with him.
