Nigerian bandleader Femi Kuti made a booty-shaking return to the Hollywood Bowl on July 7. If the Bowl’s “Jazz Series” subscribers in the boxes down front seemed uncertain how to respond to the sheer physicality of the performers on stage, the benches above them looked more like a party, a place where one could get physically overtaken by a groove and end up stuck there for the duration.
