Robert Glasper on his residency“Robtober is back! This is year 4 of my residency at the legendary Blue Note in NYC!! Coming off the heels of the Blue Note Jazz Festival in Napa Valley, I can’t wait to see what this residency has in store! Let’s Go Robtober!!”

Robtober 2022 is set to be bigger and better this year, as Glasper is feeling inspired by his recent residency at the inaugural Blue Note Jazz Festival Napa Valley. Hosted by Dave Chappelle, the three-day festival included performances from legends such as Chaka Khan, Maxwell, Snoop Dogg, Madlib, Thundercat, Ledisi, and BJ the Chicago Kid. This fall, Glasper is planning another round of genre-bending curation across several themed nights, including tributes to Herbie Hancock and Meghan Stabile, the latter featuring Revive Big Band. Grounded in Black American Music, especially the jazz big band, the Revive Big Band redefines what the big band sounds like combining jazz, hip-hop, funk, soul, blues & gospel for what is sure to be a special night of musical collaboration. 

In 2018, Glasper became just the 4th musician to hold a month-long residency at Blue Note, joining a short list that includes jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, Chick Corea and Chris Botti. The residency was spotlighted in the New York Times, which proclaimed that Glasper is “probably the most prominent jazz musician of his generation.” Last year’s run saw numerous A-list celebrities and unannounced special guests, including Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, H.E.R, and more. You never know what’s going to happen when Robert Glasper is live at the Blue Note.

Robert Glasper is the leader of a new paradigm in jazz, with a career that spans musical and artistic genres, winning 4 Grammys and 8 nominations across 7 categories, as well as an Emmy for his song on Ava Duvernay’s doc “13th". October 2021 marked his return to the Blue Note, one of his first jazz stomping-grounds, for another record breaking residency (coined “Robtober”) as he took over the Blue Note New York with an astounding 66 shows over 33 days, celebrating his musical career. Whilst his style consistently defies definition, Glasper’s residency demonstrates not only different eras, but also various parts of his musical community and the impact his collaborators have had on his development and style.
