Robert Glasper Trio

Duration:
1 hour, 45 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 15 November 2010

Jez Nelson presents New York based jazz pianist Robert Glasper in concert with his trio at the 2010 London Jazz Festival. Glasper, who has been described as one of the most promising pianists of his generation, works regularly with hip hop artists including Mos Def, Bilal and The Roots. His trio, featuring drummer Mark Colenburg and bassist Derrick Hodge, is firmly rooted in the classic jazz piano trio tradition. But Glasper's compositions, and the group's approach to rhythm and group interplay, are influenced by contemporary hip-hop and soul music.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Peggy Sutton & Russell Finch.
