The Robert Glasper Experiment (RCDC) in Stockholm, Sweden

December 4th, 2011 by demonterious Leave a reply »

Earlier this year I did the Stockholm Jazz festival and had an opportunity to meet and hang out with the guys that I really look up to… Robert Glasper, Derrick Hodge, Chris Dave and Casey Benjamin – better known as The Robert Glasper Experiment, or more recently RCDC.  Incredible group of guys and musicians on and off stage.  We all went to a jam session hosted by the Jazz Festival and these guys went on stage and shut the place down!  Here’s a little clip of their impromptu performance:

    Hands down he is one of the top 10 Jazz musicians. I think that we’ll look back at him as one of the ones that was responsible for the evolution of jazz in today’s time.

  2. Hi Brainmunchie,
    Maybe a little off topic, however, The nominees are…

    “Daykeeper” The Foreign Exchange featuring Muhsinah
    “All Matter” Robert Glasper & Bilal
    “Pearls” India.Arie & Dobet Gnahore
    “A Tale of Two” Eric Roberson, Ben O’Neill, & Michelle Thompson
    “Blend” Tonex

    I only recognize India.Arie & Tonex. & I also recall hearing the latter from a Internet radio station called YHot, which played contemporary hip-hop, R&B, & gospel. The 52nd Grammys take place this Sunday on CBS.
    I’ll be back to read more next time

  3. Hello Brainmunchie,

    I look forward to your next post
