The album's centerpiece is the 13-minute "In Case You Forgot. It begins with a knotty, angular solo piano intro (check "Silly Rabbit" from 2007's In My Element), with single-note syncopations and mid-register arpeggios cascading around a four-note bassline with classical embellishments. Covered may be a return to the acoustic piano trio, but cedes none of the ground gained by the Black Radio albums. This is Glasper refusing to be reined in by any format or artistic desire but his own. This set is welcoming, open, and warm: it invites fans of all of his musical pursuits along for the ride.
For his new album, Covered, pianist Robert Glasper moves away from the unifying crossover aspirations of his Black Radio albums with a serene collection of jazz-influenced tracks. For this release, Glasper reverts to the jazz trio with which he recorded his first two Blue Note albums-2005's Canvas and 2007's In My Element. With bassist Vicente Archer and drummer Damion Reid, Glasper recreates instrumentals from Black Radio and Black Radio 2, remixing tracks from occasional collaborators Musiq Soulchild ("So Beautiful") and Bilal ("Levels"). Much like his work with the Experiment, Glasper tackles all genres, though on Covered, the results are more straightforward than anything with his other band.
