Norah Jones recently teamed up with Questlove and Christian McBride for a cover of The Staple Singers‘ “Why Am I Treated So Bad.”
The pair joined Jones as guests while recording the latest episode of her podcast “Playing Along.”
The episode also features the trio’s collaborative covers of D’Angelo, Pops Staples, and Kris Kristofferson, among others.
Jones has shared a video of her on piano and vocals, Questlove on drums and McBride playing double bass.
“We were talking earlier about the steady gig – all those steady gigs you played in hotel lobbies and restaurants and bars, that’s where we all got our training,” McBride said. “I’ve always been too pragmatic. As a bass player, my thing was always ‘Do whatever you have to do to keep the gig.’ I was less worried about individualism – just don’t get fired, that was always my thing.”
“This was a really fun time for me. It was like a dream, like, ‘Should we just make an album? Why are we all here?’ [.] It was a pretty great episode,” Jones said about Playing Along Podcast Episode 27.
