Robert Glasper Electric Trio & Dinner Party Live Streams Coming Soon

Robert Glasper has two live streams this fall with his Electric Trio and Dinner Party bands. The events will take place on October 8th and Octobr 19th in partnership with On Air. The trio features Burniss Travis, Justin Tyson and DJ Jahi Sundance. Terrace Martin and Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah will perform the music from the Dinner Party album they released last year. Glasper is excited to perform for his fans during this time of limited travel. He says, 

“I’m really excited for people to see these shows. People have been asking when I’m coming to their city but I can’t travel everywhere right now, obviously. It was a really cool experience to perform in the space with 3D screens. It looked kind of trippy and fun while we were recording, so I’m looking forward to watching it again and being able to experience it with fans that can’t see me live right now. I hope they have as much fun watching it as we did while recording it.”

Glasper just won his fourth Grammy earlier this year for “Better Than I Imagined” with Meshell Ndegeocello and H.E.R. He also appeared as jazz great Art Tatum in National Geographic’s Aretha: Genius and scored the music for Starz’s Run The World with Derrick Hodge. In addition to the live stream events he will kick off his next Blue Note residency called Robtober from October 1 to November 7th. Tickets for the live-streamed shows can be purchased here


Robert Glasper, 9th Wonder, Kamasi Washington & Terrace Martin Release Album As The Dinner Party

Robert Glasper, 9th Wonder, Kamasi Washington and Terrace Martin have released an album as Dinner Party. The jazz, hip-hop, soul project has a comfort zone between 9th Wonder’s production and the live approach from the musicians and guest singers. The warm vibes of the album address love and the current strife in the country around the response to police brutality. The friends and colleagues chose the Dinner Party moniker to reflect years of friendship, conversations over dinner and working together.
