Playing at The Late Show set with Kojo Roney

Last month, I headed over to the Late Show set with Kojo Roney, by invitation of the show's band leader, Jonathan Batiste. We got to hear the band rehearse and we saw Stephen Colbert rehearsing some of the sketches and jokes for the taping. Afterwards, Jonathan asked Kojo and I to come up and play something with him, before everyone had to begin preparing for the taping. We played "Listen Here" by Eddie Harris for about five minutes! A minute is below (that was all that was taped). It was a great experience going to the set, as well as a great opportunity for us.
