Pianist and composer Robert Glasper is on a mission to reconcile modern jazz with hip-hop and R&B. And his latest Blue Note recording with the electrified Experiment band, Black Radio, is a bold manifesto.

The album is an incisive commentary on urban music, ingeniously combining both aspects of his stellar career. Glasper became a go-to keyboardist for some of the era’s defining hip-hop and R&B stars, including Mos Def, Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Meshell Ndegeocello, Jay-Z and Maxwell.

At the same time, Glasper made a name for himself as an insightful post-bop pianist with jazz masters such as Christian McBride, Roy Hargrove and Terence Blanchard. Poised to become the next instrumental superstar, Robert Glasper is truly the sound of now.
