Jazz maestro Robert Glasper and his band will be dropping Black Radio 2 this October. Eargasm!
It was Esperanza Spalding in 2011 winning the Best New Artist award at the Grammy’s and last year, Robert Glasper won Best R&B Album against the odds for his genre-crossing album Black Radio (well, the Robert Glasper Experiment). Jazz is shaking off the unfounded stigma and stereotypes of yesteryear and Glasper has more to say on the matter. According to the New York Times, the pianist will be releasing the follow up, “Black Radio 2”, on 29th October. Good news is there are plenty more in the way of features, with Snoop Dogg (hopefully not in his feline incarnation), Common and Norah Jones, who Robert Glasper worked with on Q-Tip’s Life Is Better. This will only do good for the world of modern jazz fusion and I’m here for every last note.
