Not long after the arrival of pianist Robert Glasper on the New York City jazz scene, Ben Ratliff of the New York Times declared that Glasper’s trio “deserves comparison with the best of the newer piano trios, those led by Jason Moran, Bill Charlap and Brad Mehldau.” So it’s fitting that Glasper has decided to feature his trio exclusively on In My Element, his ravishing sophomore release for Blue Note Records. Joined again by his compatriots Vicente Archer on bass and Damion Reid on drums, Glasper displays musical maturity well beyond his 27 years, articulating bold ideas about what a jazz piano trio can achieve in the new millennium.
