Robert Glasper has caused a stir with his impressive musicianship and with his spiky and vocal articulation of wishing to develop music that is free to move beyond the aesthetic values imposed by the (often self-appointed) guardians of a specific musical culture. As a Jazz musician Glasper is keenly aware of the cultural, historical and ethnically informed narratives that weave through the Jazz tradition, and is equally aware of a purist strain in Jazz practice and interpretation that seeks to preserve the artform against what are viewed as the 'the barbarian hordes'. Glasper has, however, recognised that there are multiple musical traditions operating which form a part of the same ethnic and culturally inspired experience, and is clearly comfortable in attempting to merge what some consider the 'high art' of Jazz (thereby ignoring key components informing the art form) with popular vernacular and folk inspired traditions, of which Hip Hop offers the most recent example.

This is not to suggest that 'Black Radio' should be seen as a pluralist all encompassing rejection of purist aesthetic celebration as the liner notes (written by Angelika Beener) speak of a tradition that has informed and constantly revitalised popular musical culture, whilst also being appropriated by elements existing within the same popular framework, both within and outside the ethnic and socio-culture that she references. According to Beener, 'Black Radio' offers an example to take forward, '...the solution is not to keep reaching behind us for authenticity...but (the past) cannot be the sole definer of legitimacy. Modernism is now...when minstrelsy fades, and monotony jades, there will still be Black Radio'.

Strikes a fine balance between Soul , Jazz and Hip-Hop.
Excellent production and superb compositions.
I know its only February but I predict this to be the album of the year
Essential listening for modern fusion lovers. Sounds its best when listened to in its entirety.

My CD arrived weeks before its estimated time of arrival, which was a bonus. The CD itself lived up to all my expectations and then blew them out of the water. If your thinking of purchasing black radio, I couldn't recommend it more!

Heard the album on youtube and just had to get a copy for myself. Really loved song for Hermione but all the songs spoke to me. If you like neo soul/jazz you should definitely add this to your collection.

From beginning to end you can sit comfortably and let the music consume you. You may fall asleep but it'd be due to it's relaxing aura. Lovely!

This is a statement of intent that Jazz is here to stay, ever evolving and a melting pot of styles and Robert Glasper does it so so well.

Robert Glasper never fails to come up with the goods. All of the tracks grow on you the more you play them.
