Robert Glasper Experiment

Music, Jazz

Mixing his fluent technique, which can sound a little Brad Mehldau-ish at times, with a peerless understanding of fractured hip-hop rhythms a la his mentor, the late, great J Dilla, pianist Glasper is one of a kind. Improvising around melodic fragments in the same way a DJ would cut and loop a sample or beat, it's the fireworks between him and explosive drummer Chris Dave that really set his gigs alight.
