ROBERT GLASPER @ AUMF 2015 – QUITETRILL

Picture 014

Robert Glasper is probably the most known unknown artist of recent times. His sound is a mixture of R&B, Soul, Jazz and Hip Hop. Hailing from Houston, Tx his sound is the new standard in contemporary fusion jazz. In our opinion @ QuiteTrill he is a modern-day Herbie Hancock or Ramsey Lewis. He has won 3 Grammy awards for his work yet his name will draw a blank stare from a lot of people. He has collaborated with many great artists such as Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Muziq Soulchild, Ledisi, and most recently the highly acclaimed “To Pimp A Butterfly” by Kendrick Lamar. His quartet remains in tact and tour often, that makes the live performance so dope. These guys are a real band they practice and tour together and have an instinct for how the other band members operate. We make it a point to see him live when ever he comes to Austin Texas, enjoy a bit of the footage from his performance, this performance featured the incomparable Lalah Hathaway and Musiq Soulchild.
