Robert Glasper Experiment Live @ Village Underground

May 21, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Last week I was lucky enough to witness an epic gig by Jazzfusion legend Robert Glasper who came to London to play a gig at the Barbican on Tuesday night and to introduce his new album Black Radio which was just released on Blue Note.

And because he loved the concert and the crowd so much he set up an ad-hoc gig the next day at the Village Underground - which sold out despite only 16 hours set-up time. And that's where I took these photos.

It was the longest gig I have ever been to with nearly 3 hours of playing and jamming in front of an ecstatic crowd. Understandably that Robert didn't want to stop playing - the atmosphere was just tremendous. At one point he gave the mic to some girls in the crowd who gob-smacked everyone with their incredible voices.

He was supported by his band Casey Benjamin, Derrick Hodge and Mark Colenburg and the by guest singer Lalal Hathaway.
