Several weeks ago, Matt and I were asleep but the TV was still on. We both woke up literally at the same time, startled by the musical guest on Jimmy Fallon. We said pretty much in unison, “Who in the hell is this?”
Obviously both captivated by the mesmerizing music, I woke up the next morning and immediately researched Robert Glasper Experiment. I found a bunch of his early stuff, all jazz. Then, finally found what I was looking for: his new record Black Radio. I’ve listened to his rendition of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” about a thousand times since. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
