J.A.W. pres.: Robert Glasper Experiment live

Montag, 31.10.2011

Am nächsten Montag kann man ein erstklassiges Jazz-Konzert in Berlin erleben: Pianist Robert Glasper (der mittlerweile seinen beknackten Rasta-Zopf abgeschnitten hat) spielt mit seiner Band im Festsaal Kreuzberg. Er gilt als offener Jazz-Musiker, der gerne die Nähe zum HipHop sucht und solche Elemente in seine Musik einbaut. Seine Mitmusiker sind alles erfahrene Studio-Mukker, sodass man auf diese Verschmelzung von Jazz, HipHop und Funk gespannt sein kann.

Soulkombinat verlost wieder 1 x 2 Karten zu diesem Konzert: Mail an info ätt soulkombinat punkt de.

J.A.W goes live on October 31 for a very special one and presents – for the first time in Berlin – the amazing Robert Glasper & his Experiment.

With his new coming album – 4th one, to be released early next year for the legendary Blue Note Records Label, the 32 year-old Houston native pianist is definitely recognized today as one of the most gifted musicians of this jazz/hip-hop era. His Band – The Experiment – is continually stretching the boundaries of jazz & hip-hop, often exploring i.e. new interpretations of genius Beat Maker J Dilla (RIP) or Radiohead (kotz! d. Red.) songs.

If you’re lucky enough to catch him live in his hometown NYC or on the road, you won’t be surprised to see prestigious guests sharing the stage with the Experiment – such as Mos Def & Q-Tip (Glasper being their musical director), his mate Bilal, Pete Rock, Mf Doom, Pharoahe Monch or even Roy Ayers. His work with these musicians and legendary producer J Dilla has contributed to build his solid reputation as a jazz pianist with a strong hip-hop sensibility.

For this one, The Experiment will be consisted of Glasper himself on keys, the impressive Mark Colenburg on drums (Q Tip, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill – known for his ridiculous laid-back style like his mate Chris Dave) Derrick Hodge on Bass (composer/performer with hip hop lyricist Common Sense, Jill Scott, Maxwell, Terrance Blanchard…) & Casey Benjamin on alto saxophone & Vocoder.
