La vida en un poema escrito en una servilleta. La vida en un Fa sostenido. La vida en una canción reproducida por un iPod. La vida en una nota.
Life on a love poem written on a napkin. Life on a F-sharp. Life on a tune played by an iPod. Life on a note.

Robert Glasper Experiment: this is musical success being tested
Robert Glasper is one of the most remarkable musicians when
it comes to materializing the strong and close relationship jazz has with other
more contemporary genres. It has been said that, in order to break boundaries,
you first need to pay respect to tradition. And Robert Glasper has done just
that by offering a series of strong albums that go from straight jazz to more
adventurous works like Black radio
(2012), his most recent effort. This album comes as a natural sequel to what he
started with Double booked (2009),
where he divided his discourse into its two main parts: traditional jazz and
his electric experiment. Robert Glasper Experiment is an outstanding act that
sounds as a modern tribute to black music. Along with a group of prestigious
singers and rappers, Robert Glasper Experiment has crafted a notable compilation
of tunes that stands as a very reliable and vivid picture of the great moment
black music is having nowadays.
This is a live performance of Always
