iTunes Festival // Robert Glasper & Jose James
September 13, 2012
Brownswood extended fam Jose James is preparing to drop his fourth album via the legendary Blue Note imprint. The list of collaborators is ridiculous… Pino Palladino, Robert Glasper, Takuya Kuroda, Richard Spaven and Chris Dave to name a few… and from the snippets we’ve heard via Gilles P, it really sounds like the dream team have delivered the goods. The aforementioned Robert Glasper is a magician, plain and simple, and his album ‘Black Radio’ (released earlier this year) trod the tightrope between hip-hop and jazz with consummate ease and panache.
Both are gracing the stage at the iTunes Festival next weekend – Sunday 23rd September – at the Roundhouse in North London. It’s free but you need to head over to itunesfestival.com to apply for tickets.
