About this Performance

Like Duke Ellington before him, Robert Glasper sees through the boundaries that are often laid down between genres and styles of music. An accomplished pianist respected by the jazz establishment, he’s also deeply in touch with the sounds that are shaping the 2020s, and is a go-to collaborator for everyone from Herbie Hancock to Kendrick Lamar. Together with an orchestra and some very special guests, he’ll erase the boundaries of time, too, bringing the music of Ellington into conversation with jazz’s present and its future.
