Robert Glasper has won 4 GRAMMY® Awards (with 6 nominations) and an Emmy Award. The pianist and producer’s many projects include an acoustic jazz trio and numerous electric bands that explore fusions of jazz and hip hop, as well as his new projects including the supergroup Dinner Party ft. Glasper, Kamasi Washington, Terrace Martin and 9th Wonder; as well as August Greene and R+R=NOW. In addition to touring, Glasper keeps a steady work flow as a film composer, producer and music director across many platforms including writing and performing with Common the end theme song to the Netflix show Bookmarks in which Black celebrities and artists read children’s books by Black authors to spark meaningful conversations about empathy, equality, justice, self-love, and anti-racism.

Glasper’s breakthrough 2012 album Black Radio won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. Black Radio featured guest performances by many neo-soul and hip hop artists including Lupe Fiasco, Bilal,  Lalah Hathaway  and  Yasiin Bey. The album was met with both commercial success (#10 debut on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart) and wide acclaim, with Rolling Stone declaring “Glasper heads down the fraught path of hip-hop jazz and gets it right.”

Glasper followed that with Black Radio 2, which won a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance in 2014 for his version of “Jesus Children of America,” featuring Lalah Hathaway and Malcolm Jamal Warner.

Glasper has also drawn wide attention for his prominent role on Kendrick Lamar’s acclaimed album To Pimp A Butterfly. He has written/performed on albums by Mac Miller, Anderson Paak, Banks, Big K.R.I.T., Bilal, Esperanza Spalding, Herbie Hancock, Q-Tip and Talib Kweli. The song “Letter To The Free”; written with Common and Karriem Riggins, won an Emmy Award for Best Original Song in the Ava Duvernay documentary film 13th (Netflix) at the 2017 Emmys.

Next up for Glasper is the long-awaited release of Black Radio vol. 3, with this very special 2022 Biamp PDX JAZZ FESTIVAL appearance a showcase of those new tunes along with his now classic catalog.
