Robert Glasper to Release New Album, ‘Double-Booked’

Pianist Robert Glasper will release his third Blue Note album, Double-Booked, on August 25th. According to a press release from the label, Glasper will “present both sides of his musical persona with an album that bridges his parallel careers as the leader of an acclaimed jazz trio and a first-call sideman with hip hop artists such as Q-Tip, Mos Def and the Roots. Moving nimbly from the acoustic Robert Glasper Trio to the hip-hop fusion Robert Glasper Experiment, the young keyboardist puts his versatility front and center.” Special guests include Mos Def and Bilal.
