Five-time Grammy Award winner Robert Glasper helps launch 2024 at City Winery Boston with an unprecedented 6 show residency January 8-10, with shows at 6pm and 9:30pm each night. Tickets are on sale at citywinery.com/boston.
Robert Glasper is the leader of a new sonic paradigm with a career bridging musical and artistic genres. To date, he boasts 5 Grammy wins and 12 nominations across 11 categories, an Emmy Award for his song for Ava Duvernay’s critically hailed documentary 13th with Common and Karriem Riggins, and a Peabody Award for his Composition of “Mr. Soul!”. His work and accolades bridge all aspects of the music business, from live touring to film scoring, composing, and producing.
With evolution as his hallmark, Glasper’s breakout crossover album Black Radio changed the face of the genre and set a new expectation for what popular music could be. The album earned him the Grammy for best R&B album and established Glasper as the musician of choice for some of the world’s most iconic artists, notably playing keys throughout Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly, winning another Grammy for the elastic track “These Walls.”
In the last few years alone, Glasper has seen a staggering diversity of success. He dropped Fuck Yo Feelings, a star-studded mixtape, his first on Loma Vista Records with features ranging from YBN Cordae to Herbie Hancock to Yebba. His Black Radio III won Best R&B Album at the 2023 Grammy Awards.
Glasper created an original score for the Emmy nominated documentary The Apollo and the feature film The Photograph starring Issa Rae. He led a legendary residency at the Blue Note NYC with 56 sold-out shows in 27 days which saw everyone from Dave Chappelle to Tiffany Haddish, Chadwick Boseman, Q-Tip, Anderson .Paak and Angela Davis join him on and off stage. And, alongside long-time collaborator, co-producer, and creative partner Terrace Martin, he formed another dream team supergroup featuring Kamasi Washington and 9th Wonder called Dinner Party.
