    WATCH: Robert Glasper Experiment Live in NYC w/ Lupe Fiasco, Bilal & Yasiin Bey (Mos Def).

    Whole lotta buzz on the Interwebz this week regarding Robert Glasper Experiment 's acclaimed, just released Black Radio LP. On this admirable envisioning of more open-formatted "urban" airwaves (featuring the contributions of Erykah Badu, Mos - doh! - Yasiin Bey, Lalah Hathaway, Shafiyq Husayn, and others) Glasper finds equal time for Fender Rhodes-soaked original compositions, as Mongo Santamaria ("Afro Blue") and Nirvana covers ( an ill Herbie Hancock-esque talk-box take of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" ). Above, the keyboardist/producer/bandleader's crew is joined by Lupe Fiasco and Bilal to perform "Always Shine" from last night's episode of The Late Show with David Letterman .

    AFTER THE JUMP... peep a live performance of Black Radio 's title track with Yasiin Bey at NYC's Highline Ballroom from last Tuesday. (Peace to IdolXfactor2 and masterx09 for the uploads.)

      Solid performance. My early reaction to the album is that portions are sorta brilliant. Might come to realize that the entire work is, but I have only had it a day.
