Sit back. Here’s 108 minutes of streaming video from Arte Live Web of the Robert Glasper Trio with Derrick Hodge and Chris “Daddy” Dave, joined later by vocalist Bilal, recorded at La Villette three weeks ago on September 12th.

Thanks to the sharp eyes of the Nextbop blog from Montreal for spotting this one.

The Robert Glasper Trio share a double bill with trumpeter Terence Blanchard’s Quintet in the London Jazz Festival on Sunday November 14th. Booking is on the Barbican’s site. Jazz on 3 will be broadcasting the Glasper set, Jazz Line-Up the Blanchard set.

This one looks like one of the stand-out gigs of the festival.

  1. Thank you for sharing this, R. Glasper is a fine example of a musician who's done his homework and is a modernist with traditional sensibilities.
