Robert Glasper: Canvas

Read "Canvas" reviewed by Chris May

Of the three dozen albums released in Blue Note's 180gm vinyl Blue Note 80 reissue series, Robert Glasper's 2005 debut, Canvas, is the only one recorded in the twenty-first century. Almost all of the other releases were recorded during Blue Note's 1950s and 1960s belle epoque. It is a singular distinction and an appropriate one, for ...

Zlatko Kaućić, Ab Baars: Canvas

Read "Canvas" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Registrato a Cracovia nell'ottobre del 2014, questo CD documenta una delle performances di due maestri dell'improvvisazione europea, che si conoscono e collaborano da molti anni, quali sono il percussionista sloveno Zlatko Kaućić e il sassofonista e clarinettista olandese Ab Baars. Le sette tracce iniziano con un'improvvisazione piuttosto lunga (quasi ventidue minuti), molto tormentata e ...

Robert Glasper: Canvas

Read "Canvas" reviewed by Abe Pollack

Many young jazz musicians are no strangers to pop music. More familiar with Radiohead's Kid A and Public Enemy than Jerome Kern or Cole Porter, they have become increasingly more adventurous in an attempt to make jazz a commodity for the 21st Century. Unlike glossy pop covers from the '80s, Robert Glasper uses subtlety to explore ...

In addition to unveiling gems from the past like John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk's At Carnegie Hall, Blue Note continues to spotlight the musicians of present with recordings like Robert Glasper's Canvas. Similar to Jason Moran, Jacky Terrasson, and Bill Charlap, who also record for Blue Note, Glasper has the vision and ability to create a ...

Robert Glasper: Canvas

Read "Canvas" reviewed by Paul Olson

Houston-raised, New York-based pianist Robert Glasper's Blue Note debut is only his second CD as a leader, but one would be hard pressed to find a single argument against his being ready for the big-time jazz limelight. The 67 minutes of music on Canvas are packed with richly memorable compositions, virtuosic playing, unassumingly exotic harmony and ...

Robert Glasper: Canvas

Read "Canvas" reviewed by Jim Santella

As the paintbrush of modern mainstream jazz takes broader strokes across the canvas of contemporary music, Robert Glasper folds elements from several areas into his art. And that's what makes his performances so interesting. His first album, Mood (Fresh Sound New Talent, 2004), introduced the pianist as an eclectic artist who takes jazz and blues to ...

Robert Glasper: Canvas

Read "Canvas" reviewed by Chris May

Hallelujah! Another exciting young pianist emerges to take the classic piano trio tradition forward. This is Robert Glasper's second album--the first was Mood (Fresh Sound New Talent, 2003)--and at just 26, he is already cooking. The marketing thrust which accompanies this album makes much of Glasper's supposed membership of the hip-hop massive. Truth is, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
