    From the Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series

    Curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman

    Mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes

    180-gram 2LP pressed at Optimal in Germany

    On his acclaimed 2005 Blue Note debut Canvas, pianist and composer Robert Glasper proved he had jazz chops in abundance with his acoustic trio featuring bassist Vicente Archer and drummer Damion Reid, while a hip hop sub-context lay just beneath the surface in the album's skittering beats, hinting at future directions that Glasper would take on albums such as the Grammy-winning Black Radio years later.

    The album featured special guests Mark Turner on tenor saxophone plus vocalist Bilal, and presented Glasper's signature sound on nine original tunes as well as a nod to one of his biggest influences Herbie Hancock with a version of "Riot."
