Canvas (Robert Glasper)
What a great discovery! Complex, but not a-symphonic, mellow tunes, with what you might call upbeat, due to their faster background rhythms, numbers, that are vastly satisfying listening for lovers of real jazz! As other reviews note, there are influences from bebop, hiphop, and club jazz; this is some fine, fine music! I'm a blues addict, but you have to have sunshine and constellations now and then. Here they are! LISTEN to a sample, then buy one or TWO of this man's work!
