We first heard of Glasper in 2005, when he released Canvas on the iconic Blue Note label, and gained a reputation for throwing together the outlandish with the melodic. Britain’s barometer-of-cool Gilles Peterson tipped him as a talent to watch.
Since then, the musician has become jazz’s emissary in mainstream music – chiefly through his collaborations, but also on his on terms. In 2015’s Covered, he returned to straight jazz with his original trio, covering the likes of Joni Mitchell, John Legend and Radiohead.
