One of the most eminent pianist today, Glasper reconciles modern jazz with hip hop and R&B. His 2012 recording, BLACK RADIO won the GRAMMY for Best R & B album. In 2013 he released BLACK RADIO 2, with special guests like Lalah Hathaway, Marsha Ambrosious, and more. Interviewed by Downbeat Magazine, Glasper stated, "I've gotten bored with jazz to the point where I wouldn't mind something bad happening. Slapping hurts, but at some point it'll wake you up. I feel like jazz needs a big-a&% slap."
