A NEW JAZZ GREAT: ROBERT GLASPER

Robert Glasper : Montreal Jazz Festival 2007

BIO:

Robert Glasper (b. Houston, Texas) is a jazz pianist. He has performed at jazz festivals throughout the world, and released his major-label debut, Canvas, on Blue Note Records in 2005. He has also collaborated with many hip hop and soul musicians, including Bilal (as musical director), Mos Def (also as musical director), Common, Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Jay-Z, J Dilla, Erykah Badu and Meshell Ndegeocello. In addition to his jazz trio, he also has another line up, The Robert Glasper Experiment, in which he explores fusions of jazz and hip hop.

Glasper’s trio performed at the 2007 Bonnaroo Music Festival as part of Blue Note’s “Somethin’ Else” jazz tent. Like previous Jazz great, Herbie Hancock, Glasper is likely to be included in the classic Jazz cannon as his active and prolific participation in hip and contemporary music youth culture is unique and rare for Jazz musicians today.
