2012 album from the Jazz pianist and his electric Experimental band. Black Radio is a future landmark album that boldly stakes out new musical territory and transcends any notion of genre, drawing from Jazz, Hip Hop, R&B and Rock, but refusing to be pinned down by any one tag. Black Radio also features many of Glasper's famous friends from the spectrum of urban music, seamlessly incorporating appearances from a jaw-dropping roll call of special guests including Erykah Badu, Bilal, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Shafi q Husayn (Sa-Ra), KING, Ledisi, Chrisette Michele, Musiq Soulchild, Meshell Ndegeocello, Stokley Williams (Mint Condition), and yasiin bey (Mos Def).

There is nothing that I can't already add to these glowing reviews. Lalah Hathaway's rendition of Sade's song Cherish is absolutely beautiful. Bilal's voice is on two tracks and I am always impressed at his vocal talent. His voice is a brand unto itself. Erykah delivers as always. Stokely from Mint Condition's voice was so beautiful that it was hard to distinguish it from an actual instrument. Ledisi's tract was predictably good. She can sang the phone book as far as I am concerned.
Yasin Bey formerly known as Mos Def, DELIVERS the most head "noddingest" joint I have heard this year. I love Yasin's voice, he is like a hip hop Billie Holiday.
But my absolute FAVORITE tracks are Michelle Ndegeocello's Consequences of Jealousy and Musiq/Chrissette Michelle's duet. Whenever I hear them both, I don't know whether to cry or exhale. Beautiful is an understatement. It is HAUNTING.
If you are a non-mainstream TRUE music lover, then you will enjoy this CD. It has been on constant loop in both my office as well as my car.
Well Done Sir!!!
