For those of you who do not get to catch The Roots on Jimmy Fallon live in-studio, you’re missing out on some treats. During each commercial break, The Roots perform little jams that ?uestlove likes to call, “sandwiches”. Altogether, they’ve cooked up several of these musical appetizers for the show. About 1,000 to be exact (you can peep them all here. or at least most of them).  Anyway, if you would rather not sift through literally hundreds of sandwiches (getting hungry yet?), then peep this collection that brother, ?uestlove put together in the form of a free EP, called The Sandwich EP. Listen to a few below and download the full thing if you like what you hear.

P.S. They have collabos with two Jazz legends on there that you definitely need to check out. One with Chick Corea (performing his famous standard, Spain) and another with George Benson (performing Breezin’). Must’ve been awesome to jam with them. Also, “Like This Anna Torv” (A nice nod to J-Live) is my favorite sandwich of them all!

“Like This Anna Torv”

“Wan Cook Soup”

“Breezin ft. George Benson”

“Choir Fire”

Thanks IllRoots!

    That “Like This Anna” is a nice nod to a J-Live track off his “All Of The Above” album from a few years back.

  2. O word? thanks for that info. I’ma check that out. I love that “Like this Anna” joint
