I can't imagine that a frequent visitor of The Lost Tapes are more than well aware of the Super Villain and his vast catalouge. I would think that fewer readers are aware of Texas jazz pianist Robert Glasper; currently signed to the one and only Blue Note Records. Since DOOM's music is often built around jazz and hip-hop samples juxtaposed, it really shouldn't come as that much of a suprise that they've been performing a smaller amount of live shows to great results. The material in question is some of the Madlib classics reinvisioned by The Robert Glasper Experiment (which consists of pianist Glasper, Derrick Hodge on bass, Casey Benjamin on keboards and produciton, as well as drummer Chris Dave. The Madvillain cuts heard here sounds great in the context of live instrumentation so make sure to check it out below.
Out of the two sets, the first (Soundcloud link), the two track medley of "Figaro" and "Rhinestone Cowboy" is from the iTunes Festival in London about a week ago. The second, three-track set, is a set from the Montreauz Jazz Festival last year, borrowed from AllTheWayLive and is a great listen for any fans of DOOM and Glasper The two combined sets run for almost 30 minutes and is a very memorable half an hour. On a side note, The Robert Glasper Experimen recently released "Black Radio", a strongly recommended projecr for fans of smooth jazz with a touch of hip-hop. Enjoy and TURN IT UP!!
