Great show! While many may have come to hear him play the R&B songs they hear on the radio, I came anticipating his jazz influences. Robert and his band (a trio plus a DJ) did not disappoint. All three are excellent musicians, keenly listening to one another to take their improvisation to the highest heights. The polyrhythms the drummer imposed on top of the songs were amazing. The bassist's style incorporated Flamenco and played a major role in one song where you would have thought there was a guitarist on the stage, but there wasn't. But don't get it mistaken, his grooves was solid. The DJ added an atmospheric element to many songs weaving sounds and effects in and out without being obtrusive. Also, because Robert didn't have with him all the guest artists that sing on his records, the DJ would play samples of the chorus or a key line/lyric of the song, while the band played it as an instrumental. Robert Glasper's playing draws you in. From his rich chordal piano playing to his soaring single note, multi-bar phrases and riffs during his solo, he entertains with his playing as well as the humorous things he'd talk about between songs. But wait, there's more! They even busted out into a 9/8 groove during a solo section, that was funky and suspenseful. Overall, a great show that seemed to go by so quickly even though it was a two hour gig.

Amazing concert. Great venue and Robert was great as always! Derrick Hodge and Chris Dave killed it! Notable tracks: no one like you, how much a dollar cost, maiden voyage/everything in its right place. All around great show!

Robert makes beautiful music and I liked adding to dj to add an extra layer to the songs. While I don’t think there was anything transcendent during the show it was generally quite good. My complaint would be the preshow dj added nothing, a jazz club is the wrong environment for a solo dj, and I was at the bar which in blue note turns out to be a horrible place to watch a jazz show, it’s loud, crowded, with terrible sight lines. Next time will get a table.
