It is hard to conceal my emotions right now, as two of my favorite musicians of all time come together to recreate what Mongo Santamaría composed and John Coltrane made famous, “Afro Blue”. Arranged by Robert Glasper, the added flute section and Badu’s lush vocals are a match made in heaven. This song will appear on Robert Glasper’s upcoming Robert Glasper Experiment album, Black Radio, which will feature a fusion of jazz, hip-hop, rock, and R&B. [via]
