Robert Glasper & Friends


  • Blue Note Jazz Lounge 131 West 3rd Street New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

First of all, I couldn’t do this anywhere else. I came to New York tracking other peoples' footsteps - and now it’s me and the musicians that I came up with who are making footprints for the next generation to follow. New York is the reason everything popped off for me. It’s the only place in the world with this heavy traffic of quintessential, true jazz AND quintessential, true hiphop; the only place I could have met these people and made this music. So I wanted to make this month about pulling together the threads of my tribes….cuz I was in the right places at the right times - and the wrong places at the right times! And because of that we made a sound that infected the world. So I’m taking over the Blue Note to tell that story; my music milestones, in the place it all began. And I’m mad excited for it.
