Robert Glasper‘s experiment, culminating in the form of Black Radio, was a huge success. Bringing back the old days of jazz-hop, Glasper’s enchanting piano playing along with drummer Chris Dave definitely brings back memories of something old, yet provoking thoughts of something entirely new.
The jaw-dropping guestlist includes names such as Erykah Badu, Bilal, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra), KING, Ledisi, Chrisette Michele, Mos Def, Musiq Soulchild, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Stokley Williams (Mint Condition).
The stream for the album was unfortunately removed by NPR, so you’ll have to make do with a clip from The Late Show with David Letterman. The track performed is named Always Shine, featuring Lupe Fiasco and Bilal. Enjoy!
