Grammy-winning hip-hop jazz pianist Robert Glasper brings his spontaneous spirit of adventure and experimentation to the Kennedy Center. A recording artist with Blue Note Records since 2003, Glasper has collaborated with musicians ranging from Erykah Badu to Mos Def. Glasper brings his band, which boldly stakes out new musical territory and transcends any notion of genre, drawing from jazz, hip-hop, R&B, and rock, but refuses to be pinned down by any one tag.
