Live-jazz nagrany na „pociachaną” modłę, tak jakby przy samplingu pracował tu J Dilla. Mieszanka agresywnej perkusji, nu-soulu, kosmicznych klawiszy, funkcjonalnego rapu. Ta swobodna płyta powstała w 2 dni!
Given that he's spent much of the last decade producing other artists, recording collaborative sets and performing live, you could say that Robert Glasper's latest solo set - his first, by our calculation, since 2009 - is long overdue. Of course, while it may be his name on the cover, it's still a collaborative affair, with the assembled cast list including a wealth of musicians, rappers and singers from the worlds of jazz and hip-hop, including (deep breath) Bilal, Herbie Hancock, Yasiin Bley, Buddy and Terrace Martin. To fit everyone and everything in (one thing Glasper is not short of is great ideas), the GRAMMY-winning pianist has presented it as a non-stop mixtape. It's a format that allows his widescreen, eclectic vision to come to life.
