Dave Chappelle & my dad are soulmates

According to ?uestlove, Dave Chappelle has two songs in his piano repertoire, one of which is "Misty". That same fact holds true for my father. He never took a piano lesson, yet he plays the most soulful and heartfelt version of "Misty" I've ever heard. As I mentioned over here (towards the end of the post), his mother was a concert pianist, so it's in his blood, I guess.

Tonight I watched "Dave Chappelle's Block Party" (where I learned that nice little bit of trivia), about three years later than everyone else. It's pretty much my favorite thing in the world right now. I made a little mix of my favorite songs from the artists featured in the documentary. Enjoy!
