With one foot planted firmly in jazz and the other in hip-hop and R&B, Robert Glasper continues to stun audiences with his inventive take on jazz. Glasper’s extensive career in the music business ranges from producing albums to serving as a music director. The Los Angeles Times says “he’s equally comfortable in the worlds of hip-hop and jazz,” praising his ability to build a bridge between his two musical touchstones. Describing the Robert Glasper Experiment’s latest project, Black Radio, Glasper says it is “more of an urban, hip-hop, soul kind of vibe, but the spine of it all is still jazz.” The result is a musical fusion that fans of each genre love and appreciate.
