I had the special pleasure a few weeks back to catch a set by the inspirational future jazz project, Robert Glasper Experiment. Piano man Robert Glasper and his team of hip-star jazz cats tore it up at Harlow’s in Sacremento. With Experiment in the name, The Robert Glasper Experiment is certainly that – experimental.
This futuristic funky hip-hop jazz crew consists of Glasper on piano and the infamous Fender Rhodes, Chris Dave on drums, Derrick Hodge on bass, and an eccentric front man Casey Benjamin who plays both saxe and vocoder. Most recently the band has had huge successes with the release of their hit album Black Radio released in 2012 with Blue Note Records. The album features a number of guest artists including Erykah Badu, Lupe Fiasco and Bilal, Shafiq Husayn, Musiq Soulchild, and Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def).
After this widely acclaimed release followed by an extensive summer tour around the world, it was only right that last month they release a remix EP based on the album entitled, Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP. This remix EP features some of the same artists along with Pete Rock, Black Milk, ?uest Love and The Roots, Check out a few of the tunes from the remix album below…
And remember, if you like the music – buy the music. It’s available through the Robert Glasper Experiment website here.
