Robert Glasper Experiment
Venue: Band on the Wall
Date: Wednesday 16th November
Following last year’s acoustic trio gigs, Glasper revisits his electric side with a new version of the Experiment, adding a DJ to the line-up.
Expect him to continue to stake out new musical territory, drawing on jazz, hip hop, R&B and rock, and refusing to be defined by any one genre.
‘It’s a short list of jazz pianists who have the wherewithal to drop a J Dilla reference into a Thelonious Monk cover but not many jazz pianists are Robert Glasper.’ – Los Angeles Times
‘Robert Glasper Experiment’s late-night set was fired up by double-clack beats and woofy bass, tricky hi-hat figures and swirling textures.’ – Financial Times
