This morning, beloved New Orleans soul icon Aaron Neville performed on the fourth hour of The Today Show, and he brought some very special guests to play with him. Performing Neville’s new track “Hard to Believe”, album producer Eric Krasno joined the singer on guitar, while Eric “Benny” Bloom and Ryan Zoidis–aka the Shady Horns–also tagged along to make up the singer’s horn section.
Neville showcased his smooth-as-butter vocals against the funky, bouncing music created by his ace band. The track was a selection from Neville’s recently released Apache album (read the review here), easily one of the most soulful records of 2016. At age 75, Aaron Neville is just unstoppable!
The performance itself is a memorable one, as Krasno takes a slick solo towards the end, and the Shady Horns look as cool as ever under the television studio lights. Watch the magic yourself, and enjoy this soulful music by some of our favorite artists!
