In My Element
Robert Glasper's innovative new album IN MY ELEMENT, offers a view into the mind of one of the great young jazz pianists of today. At times serious and whimsical, IN MY ELEMENT displays Glasper's improvisational skills and technical expertise. In addition to composing seven of the tracks on the album, Glasper also takes on the classics with his rendition of the Sam Rivers tune "Beatrice". He even meshes Herbie Hancock with Radiohead creating a new concoction in "Maiden Voyage/Everything in it's Right Place". with little help from his friends - bassist Vicente Archer and drummer Damion Reid - Robert Glasper and his trio are poised to carry on the tradition of the finest jazz from Blue Note Records.
