Just when you thought true artistry was a thing of the past, in steps Texas jazz pianist Robert Glasper. You have to hear him to get the jist of what I’m saying. Nevertheless, on this particular night Mr. Glasper brings together his band the Robert Glasper Experiment, with guest vocalists Chrisette Michele, Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def and Bilal to perform some new tracks off of his new album Black Radio. I haven’t heard it yet, but a friend of mine tells me it is phenomenal from beginning to end!!!
In the meantime check out his performance with the lovely Chrisette Michele, this is “Ah Yeah” LUV!!!
