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.)
