Jazz/hip hop pianist Robert Glasper, who released the solid Black Radio LP last year, has a few dates coming up, including his appearance at The Roots Picnic (6/1) in Philly this weekend with Grimes, Solange, Joey Bada$$, How to Dress Well, and more (sold out). After that, he will head to NYC for a show on Monday (6/3) at Gramercy Theatre. Tickets for the Gramercy show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Robert was last in NYC for the 'Night of Improvised Round Robin Duets,' which took place earlier this month at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple as part of Red Bull Music Academy. At that show, Robert performed with Vijay Iyer and then with DJ Spinna. Check out a video of the latter, along with the list of upcoming tour dates, below...
