A Sequel As Good As The Original: The Robert Glasper Experiment’s Black Radio 2

Keyboardist Robert Glasper (and his three bandmates who make up the Robert Glasper Experiment) might be the only act remaining who can garner pop attention while offering a sound that has at least a pinky toe in jazz.

That’s not mere conjecture; that’s almost scripture at this point. “Blurred Lines” is a big old Smash Hit, the kind we only get a couple of a year, the kind that everyone knows the words to.
