An acquaintance of mine said something very interesting via a Facebook status update — “all the excitement around Robert Glasper shows that the hip-hop community is aging (duh) and desperately needs music that reflects adult experiences.” I don’t know if i could have said it any better. In case you’ve turned a deaf ear to what’s going on in the strong marriage of contemporary jazz and hip-hop, accomplished pianist Robert Glasper recently released an amazing piece of work entitled Black Radio.
The album features the likes of Bilal, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, Musiq Soulchild, Chrisette Michele and many more. FROLAB was lucky enough to be invited to some of the studio sessions to document the creative process and turned it into a mini-EPK. Support good music, ALWAYS. We need more creations like these.
