I've always felt that as an entertainer my job is to entertain & to stay out of politics & such. My voice is just one but please, folks... can we please stop it with the killing each other? Black people in America don't deserve to be looking over their shoulders every second of every day. Especially not from the humans hired by our tax dollars to protect us. #blacklivesmatter
#northseajazzfestival with #theroots tonight. Been a fun couple weeks playing shows all over the place. Germany tomorrow and then homeward bound! #lovemyjob
BET Awards with #theroots in LA over the weekend! RIP Prince. Regram from @okayplayer
The scribblings of a madman! Haha--my "cheat sheet" for the Roots/Usher shows a couple weeks ago. #theroots #usher
I run a jazz record label called "Rondette Jazz". Last week one of my best friends and label artist Jeremy Manasia celebrated the release of his new album, Metamorphosis, featuring guitar legend Peter Bernstein. Here they are at Smalls. It was beautiful.
Caught up with my bro #jeffdazey from the #leonbridges band at the #rootspicnic last night. My favorite part of playing shows out of town is running into good friends.
Eeeeeeearly morning soundcheck with #theroots & #usher for the #rootspicnic in Philly tonight. Gonna be smokin! #lovemyjob
2 days of no sleep adds up to this, folks. #daveguy #theroots #sleepwhenimdead
@kirklloyd getting the crowd going crazy in Atlanta just now. Some moving tributes to Prince throughout the show... #theroots #ripprince #sweetwater420
My residency with the great @lostonharris starts up tonight @ the Carlyle Hotel, NYC @ Bemelman's Bar for the next 3 months. I'm there every Thurs/Fri/Sat--fantastic cocktails and swinging music, folks. #lostonharris #jazzmusic
Airport madness. #daveguy
Well, this happened today. @fallontonight #daveguy #doncheadle #lovemyjob
This makes no sense. #daveguy #sxsw2016 #theroots
This was my Thursday. Not so bad.
Never thought I'd say this but I LOVE L.A. Especially when it's 10 degrees back home. About to tape a week of shows here and had some excellent musical moments with George Clinton, Gary Clark Jr, Lenny Kravitz, Leon Bridges and many more with The Roots over the weekend. Living the dream! #fallontonight #theroots #lovemyjob
Here's one of new favorite things: an American Laquer Roberto's Winds (RW) alto saxophone (at one time possessed by Sonny Rollins). I played 1930's American made horns most of my career until discovering these diamond in the rough modern horns with old souls. Thank you to Roberto and all the people involved that create these wonderful instruments. #altosaxophone #robertoswinds #rwsaxophones
Hanging out with one of my closest friends and musical influences, the great trumpet master Philip Harper. This cat truly shaped my approach to being an entertainer and I'm forever thankful. #keyedup #philipharper #jazzmusic
Hard to believe today is the 400th taping of the Tonight Show since I joined almost two years ago. Time flies! Here's to many more... #fallontonight #theroots

@drlonniesmith about to lay it down moments before show start. The greatest! #fallontonight
