Four-time Grammy-winning pianist, composer, and producer Robert Glasper will air the first in a pair of one-off, visually immersive livestreams presented in 4K UHD and Dolby Atmos in partnership with On Air. For those unable to make it to Robert’s ongoing residency at New York’s legendary Blue Note Jazz Club, the streams provide fans across the globe with a rare opportunity to see one of this generation’s foremost artistic talents operating amongst state-of-the-art production design in a quality truly befitting of his music. Robert Glasper Electric Trio will stream tomorrow (October 8) at 8pm EDT, PDT, BST* & AEST* (*October 9) with guests Burniss Travis, Justin Tyson, and DJ Jahi Sundance joining Glasper on stage.
Today, he shares a new single + video, “Shine ft. D Smoke & Tiffany Gouché,” from his highly anticipated new album Black Radio 3, out in 2022 via Loma Vista. The album’s lead single, “Better Than I Imagined” featuring H.E.R., has already earned the project a Grammy for ‘Best R&B Song’ in 2020.

Later this month, Robert’s second stream, Dinner Party — a nod to last year’s critically acclaimed self-titled album — sees the Robert Glasper Electric Trio lineup adding long-time collaborator, co-producer, and creative partner Terrace Martin and renowned trumpeter and composer, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah. Dinner Party will air on Friday, October 29 at 8pm EDT, PDT, BST* & AEST* (*October 30).
Robert says, “I’m really excited for people to see these shows. People have been asking when I’m coming to their city but I can’t travel everywhere right now, obviously. It was a really cool experience to perform in the space with 3D screens. It looked kind of trippy and fun while we were recording, so I’m looking forward to watching it again and being able to experience it with fans that can’t see me live right now. I hope they have as much fun watching it as we did while recording it.”
