Ten years after making his Blue Note debut, and following two Grammy-winning volumes of his critically and commercially successful R&B-oriented Black Radio albums, Robert Glasper has announced a return to his acclaimed acoustic jazz trio for his new album, Covered (The Robert Glasper Trio Recorded Live at Capitol Studios), which will be released June 16 on Blue Note Records.
Glasper, Vicente Archer and Damion Reid—who form the original Robert Glasper Trio featured on Glasper's first two Blue Note albums: Canvas (2005) and In My Element (2007)—reconvened at the legendary Capitol Studios in Hollywood, California in December to record Covered in front of an intimate live audience.
Wow! That's way beyond cool! How intimate and, well, real!
The material mainly consisted of covers, drawing from some of Glasper's favorite songs by Radiohead, Joni Mitchell, Jhené Aiko, John Legend, Kendrick Lamar and more, as well as several Glasper originals.
