Robert Glasper Experiment
Glasper's Experiment is the versatile keyboardist's hip-hopping yang to his trio's dark and stormy yin. The music progresses in fits and starts, caterwauling between acoustic piano/drums/sax and Fender Rhodes, turntable, vocoder, and guest vocals by the likes of Bilal and Mos Def. It's a real balancing act, where '70s fusion impulses blend with next week's r&b.
