Miles Festival Series: The legacy of trumpeter and composer Miles Davis from across his career and from around the world.

«While his roots are definitely in jazz, the bandleader knows no boundaries. » — Billboard

The most prominent artist blurring lines between acoustic jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary R&B, pianist and composer Robert Glasper returns with music from Everything’s Beautiful, his project devoted to re-conceptualized versions of Miles Davis compositions originating from Glasper’s score to director and actor Don Cheadle’s Davis tribute film Miles Ahead. Like Davis, Glasper has been a driving force keeping the music moving forward, becoming a crossover star with his electro-acoustic Experiment band following the game-changing 2012 GRAMMY-winner Black Radio, which won that year’s GRAMMY for Best R&B Album. Migrating from Houston to New York City in the mid-90s, Glasper became a go-to keyboardist for some of the era’s defining hip-hop and R&B stars, touring as music director for Mos Def and appearing with Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Meshell Ndegeocello, Jay-Z and Maxwell. At the same time, Glasper made a name for himself as an insightful post-bop pianist through stints with jazz masters such as Russell Malone, Christian McBride, Roy Hargrove and Terence Blanchard. His cover of the Stevie Wonder classic “Jesus Children of America” from 2014’s Black Radio II won the GRAMMY for Best Traditional R&B Performance.
