Recommended by Leilani Polk

Glasper is an exceptional talent—pianist, composer, producer, and bandleader who follows more traditional acoustic jazz format with his trio, while using the Experiment (with drummer Mark Colenburg, saxophonist and vocoder man Casey Benjamin, and bassist Derrick Hodge) to explore headier, avant-garde sonic territories that touch on free jazz, hiphop, soul, ‎R&B, and electro. Refined, forward-thinking, compelling, sublime—any of these modifiers will do. You know Common from “The Light”—a song that’d be in the Great American Hiphop Songbook, if there was one. He’s been kicking out the rap jams since the early ’90s, and even amid the 35-plus films he’s starred in since 2002, he continues making great music, winning a few Grammys and an Oscar along the way for his work. This night will be one for the record books.
