Robert Glasper performs Black Marigold & Teen Spirit then sits down to chat with Giles Peterson…….don’t miss it
I was certainly a fan of Nirvana when they came out. I actually was a big fan of the whole grunge scene…….it was like nothing I had ever heard before. It’s actually been covered by a number of artists in the past couple years from J*Davey to The Robert Glasper Experiment..check em out
I was always a fan of J*Davey but when I saw them live and they covered this track they won me for life…..the crowd went NUTS!

Robert Glasper’s new album, Black Radio is due out on Feb 28th. If this track is an indication of the direction he’ll be going with it, then count me in. I’ve been a fan since I was introduced to his album, Canvas, the track “Portrait Of an Angel” is one of my all-time favorite tracks. This track is giving it a run for it’s money with me, Erykah can’t really do any wrong in my eyes. So perhaps he’s cheating a bit, but still all in all this is a great track and a good lead into what is sure to be a must cop album.

When I’m having one of those days this song makes it all better…..
