the robert glasper experiment

15 May

There are a lot of birthdays for us this week and to celebrate, Ollie surprised the May Babies by taking a few of us to the Barbican to see the Robert Glasper Experiment.

And they were absolutely, ridiculously brilliant.

Their album debuted at number one on the jazz charts and number three on the hip hop r&b charts (just below Rihanna – even they queried whether it was ‘the greatest typo ever’).

Given they sold out the Barbican, they will be playing another last minute show tonight (venue TBC so check Robert’s twitter) and Lalah Hathaway will be playing at the Jazz Cafe on Thursday and Friday this week.

Update: the secret show will be at Village Underground tonight. Tickets at the door from about 8.30. See you there!
