This week we premiere a new video from the Woods Stage at Pickathon, with a song from bassist, singer and producer Stephen Bruner, aka Thundercat. Owning an impressively wide-ranging resume, from playing in the band Suicidal Tendencies to touring with jazz great Stanley Clarke, and recent collaborations with Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus, Kamasi Washington, and Kendrick Lamar, Thundercat’s nighttime set under the trees took the crowd on a winding nighttime path through R&B, jazz fusion and free improvisation before settling into the funk grooves of set closer “Them Changes.”

Every month this year, opbmusic and NPR Music present another episode from the Pickathon Woods Stage Series, hand-picked by opbmusic to showcase some of the most exciting performances from the 2015 festival, held at Pendarvis Farm. Look for the next video premiere on January 18th.
