Additional Information

Robert Glasper

Prolific pianist, composer and producer Robert Glasper has made a number of traditional jazz albums with his trio, but on this year’s revolutionary Black Radio, he surrounds the gorgeous acoustic sounds of his piano with synths, percussion and some fascinating guests such as vocalist Erykah Badu and Yasiin Bey (Mos Def). Associations with multiple hip-hop and R&B artists have long run parallel to Glasper’s emerging jazz career. Glasper’s music can best be described as explorations of chordal texture with space and rhythm, creating a lush tapestry of sound. The evening also includes the slickly soulful José James performing with Bobby McFerrin’s son, Taylor McFerrin. L.A.’s own keyboard upstart Austin Peralta opens. Get ready to groove.

Supported in part by the Henry Mancini Tribute Fund. Co-produced by the UCLA Student Committee for the Arts.
