When you’ve dominated the jazz charts and recorded with the likes of Mos Def, Q-Tip, Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Maxwell, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar, what’s next?

Featuring

Robert Glasper

Robert Glasper appearing at this event

Robert Glasper draws from jazz, hip-hop, R&B and rock, but refuses to be pinned down by any one tag, long keeping one foot planted firmly in jazz and the other in hip-hop and R&B. He's worked extensively with Q-Tip, playing keyboards on the rapper's 2008 album The Renaissance and co-wrote the single 'Life Is Better', which featured his label mate Norah Jones. Glasper also serves as the music director in Yasiin Bey's touring band, and has toured with the multi-platinum R&B singer Maxwell.
