Robert Glasper is one of the defining figure heads of the current moment in jazz. Whether with his electronic band, the Experiment, or his acoustic jazz trio, Glasper blends the cadences of hip-hop, soul and R&B seamlessly with jazz to create exciting fusions. His acoustic trio also often features his melding of gospel and post-bop piano technique alongside the above styles as he and his trio stretch and bridge compositions seamlessly; he can turn a Radiohead rock song into a Kendrick Lamar joint with only a handful of flourishes on the ivory keys.  Two separate sets at 7:30 and 10:30 p.m.
