Biography

One artist, two distinct but interwoven concepts: this is the captivating logic behind Double-Booked, pianist Robert Glasper’s third album for Blue Note, following up Canvas (2005) and In My Element (2007). An artist who “unfailingly gets the feeling right” (New York Magazine), Glasper has made waves throughout the music world as leader of both the acoustic Robert Glasper ...

Format: Audio CD
Five POTENT Stars! Beautiful, swinging, smooth, vocal R&B music with a modal jazz underpinning. Robert Glasper is the award-winning pianist, composer, leader, and producer who is not just crossing over from jazz to other forms of contemporary music, he's pulling down walls by blending jazz, hip-hop, R&B, gospel, and beyond, creating a form of music probably more at home on 'quiet storm' radio stations than jazz stations (for the time being). On his groundbreaking, Grammy-winning Black Radio, he raised the stakes of the preceding Double Booked, which had 6 tracks played by his jazz trio and 6 tracks of hip-hop played by his Black Radio Experiment group, to a complete recording of this transformative new music. He continues this trend with a complete recording of R&B-influenced performances on Black Radio 2. In his DownBeat magazine cover story on this new music, he thought about bringing in lesser known artists for the second Black Radio recording. Instead he has brought in some of the 'cream of the crop' of urban contemporary music, who are very much at ease in Glasper's musical world and vice versa: Macy Grey, Common, Jill Scott, Faith Evans, Marsha Ambrosius, Brandy, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, and Norah Jones, among many others.

The entire 16 track recording is uniformly excellent with songs flowing from one song to the next, creating a beautiful mellow laid-back sonic effect. My favorites begin with the uplifting performance of "You're My Everything" featuring Bilal and Jazmine Sullivan and the gospel-flavored piano enhancing a declarative rap by Common on "I Stand Alone". "Big Girl Body' featuring Eric Roberson has a beautiful background musical theme but with some chilling predictive environmental words.

One or two good tracks but absolutely nowhere near the standard of Black Radio 1. Don't buy it expecting they've maintained standards. It's everything Glasper and crew said they hate about R&B, boring, plodding and bereft of all creativity. Pointless cameo after cameo of "stars" looking to buy into some of his credibilty. Seriously, this album could make you cynical if you don't take heed of reviews like this!

The evolution of Robert Glasper and his colleagues as the 'Robert Glasper Experiment' continues apace with the release of 'Black Radio 2', accompanied by, and written in conjunction with, a host of guest appearances guaranteed to whet the appetite of every lover of contemporary black soul music, including Jill Scott (thankfully included this time!), Faith Evans, Dwele, Brandy, Lalah Hathaway, Bilal and Jazmine Sullivan. The first volume was explicitly referenced, through an accompanying liner note essay, as an attempt to fuse disparate elements from within the 'black' musical tradition and to locate Jazz as part of this wider musical discourse. The result was a was a critical and commercial success, quickly leading to the release in late 2012 of 'Black Radio Recovered: The Remixes' (Blue Note).

The album opens with 'Baby Tonight' (Black Radio 2 Theme), a short vocoder infused entry reminiscent of the late 1970s fusion style of Herbie Hancock, segueing in to 'Mic Check 2', bringing together short vocal interjections by the artists featured on the album. 'I Stand Alone' (featuring Common and Patrick Stump) is a composition clearly designed to stand as a call to black consciousness, attempting to link the African American experience to a deeper, trans-historical narrative of African creativity and identity. Replete with uplifting piano sketching, Common takes up the call in a typically mono-toned performance, whilst referencing Louis Farrakhan. The difficulties in positing and articulating a black musical exceptionalism is captured by the inclusion of a spoken word dialogue (for which the music fades down), citing the '[...] irresistible appeal of black individuality' whilst bemoaning a general lack of creative originality except for the efforts of artists obsessed with excellence.

i honestly thought they couldn't out the first album - Black Radio - robert's approach to chords just gives me the high and derrick well, what can i say about derrick...... buy his album as well!!! casey makes me blush, and mark is a beast!!!! i can listen to them all day, all night, all week. Whatever they touch.......... out of this world. i wish i could give like ten stars because they have re-defined what jazz should mean to our generation, rather than alienating the popular music and artistes of today, they have brought them together in such a way that makes you appreciate the original because you can see it in a much much, dare a i say it, imaginative and creative light. who ever thought Norah Jones could sing over drum and base, i went out to get all her other albums after i heard her voice in a way i had never heard before. well done guys and anyone who really believes in jazz, new and old, you gotta get one not just for you, but for your friends, "frenemies", enemies and obviously, haters.
