Since his breakout crossover album Black Radio, Robert Glasper has been a busy man. The album won him the Grammy for Best R&B Album and established him as the musician of choice for some of the world’s most iconic artists. To date, he boasts four Grammy wins and nine nominations across eight categories plus he has earned an Emmy Award for his song for Ava Duvernay’s critically hailed documentary 13th with Common and Karriem Riggins. His work and accolades bridge all aspects of the music business, from live touring to film scoring, composing, and producing. All of these facts make him the perfect choice to pay tribute to the artistry and legacy of Duke Ellington. We had a great conversation about the concert, his new project, and what he's been up to lately.
Robert Glasper Reimagines Ellington on Saturday, January 15th at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA.
