Robert Glasper - Black Radio (2012)
Now for something completely different. Robert Glasper is a very talented jazz musician who has constructed a remarkable album fusing jazz, soul and rap. The arrangements are great, and all the guest vocalists do a phenomenal job. I don't usually like rap (ditto for most metalheads out there), but Glasper's jazz piano stylings do wonders to make it sound smooth and sensual. Definitely give this one a try. If you're a fan of jazz and trip-hop like Portishead then you'll most likely enjoy this album.
