Last night, Meters drummer Zigabooo Modeliste performed on the Late Show with David Letterman with Erykah Badu, Mark Ronson, and members of the Dap-Kings. The group is part of Re:Generation, which pairs producers with musicians across genres as a documentary project. The group recorded the song played last night, “A La Modeliste,” with Mos Def and Trombone Shorty in New Orleans last fall, and first performed it publicly at a private show at Preservation Hall that included Shorty and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band as guests.
The documentary film of this session and the other Re:Generation sessions screens at 8 p.m. Thursday, February 16 and a week later on February 23 at the AMC Elmwood Palace 20 only. Advance tickets are available.
