I saw D'Angelo in Paris last January(2012!) and he was a killer! He still has his incredible voice, with his unique groove vibes, more, he did progress on it! He has amazing New songs("The Charade", "Suggar Daddy", "Ain't that Easy" and "Another... Life"), I Can't wait for the new album, now he playin' electric guitar, his band(pino palladino, Chris Dave...)killin'it! So, yeah, D'ANGELO is really back! and take notes, because real music is back too! >Check it out, it's the Medley I've seen in Paris(hd sound):
