Robert Glasper is a Grammy nominated jazz pianist.
He’s also the musical director for the rappers Q-Tip and Mos Def.
And he’s the pianist for R&B singer Malwell.
In his own work, he brings all those genres together into a new form.
Glasper calls his new album Black Radio. He tells Steve Paulson it’s a reference to the black box of recordings that survives a plane crash.

“It’s just that people don’t expect you to like certain things, … I guess”

“It doesn’t touch me like something else might that is of this generation.
You  know what I mean? I didn’t grow up with body and soul, I didn’t cry to body and  soul, I didn’t get my heart broken to body and soul, you know, and those people  did.”
