The marriage between hip hop and jazz is difficult. Robert Glasper is one of the experts trying to combine these two with great results. Enjoy this video. It’s over after tonight, the Nort Sea Jazz festival 2014 of which for me Robert Glasper was a highlight, together with Stevie Wonder.
Another highlight was the legendary Benny Golson, al ready 83 years old and still fabulous.
And last but not least another old man still up to the job Pharoah Sanders. Enjoyed his concert but also him leaving center stage when done with his solo or participation. The ultimate way to use older professionals to your benefit. Just let them do were they are good at! Don’t bother them with the rest, they can live with others performing very well.
Until next year.
