Glasper Biography - Modernising Jazz
This Texas born artist took his earliest musical inspiration from his mother,
a professional jazz and blues singer who would bring her son along to her performances. He learned to play the piano at a
young age and began accompanying his mother at her church performances, learning all about harmony from gospel choirs. After
making his way to the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York, the prolific pianist released his 2004 debut
album Mood - a record comprising of cover versions and original compositions.
His 2009 record Double-Booked
marked a change in direction, with a track listing that straddled traditional piano based jazz and a more contemporary, electronic
approach. His use of the iconic artist Fender Rhodes vocoder synthesiser and guest vocals from Bilal Oliver brought the album
critical acclaim, leading the way for recent highly rated records Black Radio and Black Radio 2. The albums
further aligned his hip hop and jazz influences and Black Radio 2 won a Grammy Award for best R&B Album in 2012.
