Young and fiercely talented, Robert Glasper’s far-reaching vision spans the gap between pop music and jazz. The New York Times calls him a pianist who is “redefining jazz piano for the 21st century.” Although the 32-year-old has shared the stage with Kanye West, Erykha Badu and Mos Def, Glasper is a diligent student of the jazz piano tradition. The Blue Note recording artist’s latest CD has been critically applauded as one of the finest jazz releases of the decade.
