Death: Dwele w/ the Suite for Ma Dukes Orchestra - Angel

Leaving aside the whole discussion about the interaction effects of his fame and his death, Jay Dee a/k/a J Dilla has been dead for four years now and I don't know of anybody who filled his spot.

Last year, Mochilla organized a series of three "timeless" concerts "in homage to the composer/arrangers who have influenced hip-hop in the most literal and profound ways".
The DVD can now be purchased and one of the pieces is Dwele performing Dilla-produced Angel together with Miguel Atwood-Ferguson conducting the Suite for Ma Dukes Orchestra:
