Tiny Desk Concert

From behind my own tiny desk I present to you people doing much more amazing things from behind a tiny desk. This NPR Music's Tiny Desk Concert features Raphael Saadiq performing three tracks off of his 2008 album "The Way I See It"

For his Tiny Desk Concert, Saadiq brought a remarkable accompanist in guitarist Rob Bacon. The two had just gotten off a plane, but in their impeccably tailored suits and their grand smiles, they looked fresh and played an inspired acoustic performance. As you watch, keep an eye on Saadiq's guitar work: You'll see how his years as a bassist influences many of his licks on his Taylor acoustic.

I guess there isn't enough room back behind the desk to do "It Feels Good", a personal favorite of mine.

Check out NPR Music's channel on Youtube for the latest performance.
