Robert Glasper (NYC) On The Main Ingredient 2/14!

Robert Glasper of the Robert Glasper Experiment (which also features Casey Benjamin on vocoder and saxophone, Derrick Hodge on electric bass, and Chris Dave on drums) will join me in the studio next week to talk about their newest album, Black Radio which will be released February 28th on Blue Note Records.

The album features a pretty ridiculous list of guest performances from Erykah Badu, Bilal, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra), KING, Ledisi, Chrisette Michele, Yaasin Bey (fka Mos Def), Musiq Soulchild, Me’Shell Ndegéocello, and Stokley Williams (of Mint Condition) who is featured on my favorite track so far.

About Black Radio (full bio here):

What may be most remarkable about Black Radio is how Glasper (who also produced the record) was able to weave all these different voices into a cohesive album, avoiding the random patchwork feel that many “special guest” projects suffer from. “The record doesn’t seem like it’s a special guest record because of the relationships we all have,” he says. “These are all friends. All the guests on the album have musical similarities.”

That common ground and comfort level is what created the spontaneous spirit of adventure and experimentation that permeated the recording sessions, which all the band members describe as being more fun than work. Friends would drop by the studio in Los Angeles to hang out, listen to the band, get inspired, and jump into the vocal booth to lay down a track. “These are all people who are known for being in another genre,” says Glasper, “but at heart they’re jazz musicians, so they’re like ‘Let’s hit it. We don’t really know what’s going to happen but let’s go for it and see what happens.’ We all have that in common, which is why I chose the people I chose.”
