From NPR/music and WBGO: Robert Glasper Trio: Live At The Village Vanguard

Hear The Concert Live On Wednesday, Dec. 8 At 9 p.m. ET

“The line on Robert Glasper recently is that he’s a jazz musician who also works intensely with top hip-hop and R&B artists: Maxwell, Q-Tip, Mos Def and so forth. That narrative came to the fore around the time of his 2009 album Double Booked, which showcased his ability to fuse his distinct aesthetics. But he’s still very much a jazz pianist, committed to the improvising community. Glasper is a fount of supple, flowing lines, and his piano trio is a shape-shifting, communicative unit.

His group certainly passes muster at the Village Vanguard, the New York jazz bastion where the band begins a weeklong run soon. WBGO and NPR Music will be there to record the Robert Glasper trio in concert, in a live radio broadcast and simultaneous webcast on Wednesday, Dec. 8 at 9 p.m. ET.”
