You Will Be in Awe of True Triple Threat, Robert Glasper, This Thursday
As one of the most highly regarded hip-hop musicians and producers working today, Robert Glasper knows a thing or two about putting on a great show. Watch the living legend in action when Glasper comes to Center Stage Theatre this Thursday, December 6th.
Robert Glasper has won four Grammy Awards (with six nominations) and an Emmy Award. The pianist and producer’s many projects include an acoustic jazz trio and numerous electric bands that explore fusions of jazz and hip hop, as well as two fresh new projects including August Greene and R+R=NOW. In addition to touring Glasper keeps steady work flow as a Film Composer, Producer and Music Director across many platforms.
Glasper’s breakthrough 2012 album Black Radio won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. Black Radio featured performances by many neo-soul and hip-hop artists including Lupe Fiasco, Bilal, Lalah Hathaway and Yasiin Bey. The album was recorded live, with no overdubs, and laid out a new paradigm for creative music, reaching beyond entrenched genre boundaries to create a singular vision that drew from all reaches of contemporary black music and beyond. Glasper followed that up with Black Radio 2, which won a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance in 2014 for his version of “Jesus Children of America”, featuring Lalah Hathaway and Malcolm Jamal Warner.
Recently Glasper served as producer, composer, and arranger for the film Miles Ahead, a biopic documenting the life of legendary jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, whom Glasper cites as being one of his major musical influences. In addition, Glasper released Everything's Beautiful, a tribute to Davis which includes remixes and reinterpretations of several of his original works. The album includes features from Stevie Wonder, Bilal, Illa J, Erykah Badu, Phonte, Hiatus Kaiyote, Laura Mvula, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Ledisi, and John Scofield.
Tickets to see Glasper live are now available and start at 40 dollars. All ages are welcome to attend.
