Last year marked the second annual Brooklyn Comes Alive festival, mixing over 50 musicians in unique super-group formations across three venues in Brooklyn. The highly anticipated urban festival hosted a very exciting edition of Roosevelt Collier’s New York Get Down, with the renowned pedal steel guitarist welcoming Michael League (Snarky Puppy), Adrian Tramontano (Kung Fu), Eli Winderman (Dopapod) and Rob Compa (Dopapod) for a jam session for the ages. Their performance was beyond tight, with the group eventually also being joined by Jackson Kincheloe of Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds. Following Kincheloe’s sit-in, the all-star crew moved into a stellar rendition of “Hottentot,” a classic written by John Scofield. Check out footage of “Hottentot” below, courtesy of MKDevo.
