Robert Glasper, Terrace Martin, Bilal and others have been stirring up the modern jazz/experimental pot for a few years now and it has been quite the eargasm.
Glasper has worked with notable soul/R&B singers over the years and this time around is no different. The jazz musician has taken on covers and samples of Miles Davis to create Everything’s Beautiful. The upcoming album is set to release on the 27th of May and has an all star list of features.
Bilal is featured on the first single of the album, “Ghetto Walkin'”, which was premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 radio show. Phonte, Ledisi, Stevie Wonder, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Erykah Badu are all featured on the album. Conveniently enough, KING, a group I stumbled across yesterday is also featured on the 11-track album.
