The Robert Glasper Experiment

Doors 7.30pm

Under 14s are accompanied by an adult

After dominating the jazz charts, winning a couple of R&B Grammys, and recording with the likes of Erykah Badu, Norah Jones, Mos Def, Q-Tip, Kanye West, Maxwell and Snoop Dogg what do you do next?

If you’re restless band leader Robert Glasper you score a Miles Davis film, play keys on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly and re-set what’s possible with the Experiment.

On their latest LP ArtScience, the Robert Glasper Experiment channels everything that's vibrant about music, with tracks rooted in jazz and R&B yet impossible to peg, throwing together unexpected moments of funk, soul, rock, hip-hop, blues, disco, electronic and pop. While the first two Grammy winning albums featured cameos, this is the first Experiment LP where all the members — saxophonist Casey Benjamin, bassist Burniss Travis II, drummer Justin Tyson, guitarist Mike Severson and Glasper himself — write, produce and sing, making it their most fully realised project to date and a live band you can’t afford to miss.
"'It's a short list of jazz pianists who have the wherewithal to drop a J Dilla reference into a Thelonious Monk cover but not many jazz pianists are Robert Glasper."
