ROBERT GLASPER has established himself as one of the most recognizable, influential, and evolutionary jazz artists of the modern music landscape. GLASPER’s forward-thinking album, Double Booked (2009), featured a mix of modal post-bop and funky, '80s-Herbie Hancock-inspired numbers, with a vibrant vein of R&B that winds throughout. His live legacy was cemented through several tours and festival runs across the US and all over the globe, appearing solo as well as with a variety of configurations of his band the ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT. In 2010, the group issued their first stand-alone album, Black Radio (2012) for Blue Note, which sought to blur the boundaries between jazz, hip-hop, R&B, and rock & roll, while also featuring a slew of music’s biggest names. It entered the jazz chart at number one and went on to win a Grammy Award for Best R&B album.Black Radio 2 (2013) brought out another cast of revolutionary features, and won him another Grammy for his cover of “Jesus Children” featuring Lalah Hathaway. Glasper was brought on as the official music supervisor for the 2015 Hollywood-produced biopic of Miles Davis, Miles Ahead 


In May, Glasper released the album Everything's Beautiful (2016), which served as a tribute to Davis, and includes reinterpretations of several of Davis’ original works. The ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT stepped back into the spotlight this year with ArtScience (2016), which strips their sound of the heavy features of the Black Radio albums, and gives new life and focus to the tight band dynamic they have cultivated over so many years of playing together. Continuing to change, shift and push the boundaries of his musical impact, there will never be another artist quite like Robert Glasper.
