Robert Glasper - All Matter feat Bilal

"Double-Booked" is Glasper's third release with Blue Note Records. This album is split in two halves: the first six songs are from The Robert Glasper Trio, and the last six songs are from The Robert Glasper Experiment, which combines jazz with hip-hop.
As Glasper puts it, the album emphasizes "the different hemispheres of his musical brain on one album."

Career-wise, this creates a constant balancing act, and on occasion literally being double-booked, appearing with the Trio and the Experiment on the same night. Such is the storyline that emerges on "Double-Booked," with conflicting voicemail messages from Terence Blanchard and Roots drummer Ahmir ?uestlove Thompson, each pulling for a different Glasper band. Thus, "Double-Booked" was born. Double-Booked will be released 8-25-2009.

Contributions from Mos Def, Bilal, Casey Benjamin, Vincent Archer, Derrick Hodge, Chris Dave, & Jahi Sundance.

This is blazing! It sounds like the album we need from Robert.

Between him and Christian Scott it feels like Jazz isn't going to die. They are keeping it alive!
