THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT IS BACK!!

Here's a recipe for pure funk: throw three masters of different flavors of funk in a room together, give them virtually no artisticpreparation or direction and lock the door for two days. On day three, add one extra ingredient just to make it interesting, and keep the doors locked. Remove from the studio, serve and feed millions.
For Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson, Christian McBride and Uri Caine, a whirlwind, impromptu three-day recording session that was properly dubbed the “Philadelphia Experiment” began in the Roots’ studio September 25th, 2000 and culminated in 12 tracks that was released on June 12th, 2001 on Ropeadope Records. For all artists involved, it was an incredible and rare experience.
The Philadelphia Experiment, since their one and only string of dates in December of 2001, are back together again to bring that unmistakable "Philly stew" to Bonnaroo. For more info, go to www.bonnaroo.com
