Robert Glasper piano,  Derrek Hodge double bass, Chris Dave drums.




He says his culture is hip hop and jazz is his tradition. His name is Robert Glasper; he was born in Texas just over 30 years ago and he put out his first album – Mood (Fresh Sound New Talent) – in 1993, with a special collaborator, his good friend the soul singer Bilal, who he has worked with several times. In 2005 he made his debut with the Blue Note label – the album was called Canvas – when he was already a piano trio revelation. Alongside his brilliant recording career, though, Glasper has worked with Russell Malone, Marc Whitfield, Roy Hargrove, Terence Blanchard and Christian McBride. He loves Duke Ellington and Herbie Hancock – recording several of his tunes – Erikah Badu, De La Soul and hip-hoppers Jay Z and J Dilla. Their music, impregnated with strong lyricism, draws on different sources. Without renouncing the piano jazz tradition, Glasper mixes elements of different schools of Afro-American musical culture in the same pot creating timeless contemporary work – a delicious compendium of many influences that come together in the dizzying movements of his fingers. At the Jamboree he will also have a special collaborator: Chris Dave, a versatile drummer who has renewed the language of groove, an inventor of new registers that have turned the world of the traps upside down and seduced figures like Kenny Garrett, Terence Blanchard, Me’shell N’Degeocello, Nicolas Payton, Pat Metheny, Wynton Marsalis or Glasper himself.
