Additionally, Glasper is set to appear as the guest band leader for The Roots on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on November 7th and 8th, promising a blend of his signature style with the show’s musical segments.

2023 has been a milestone year for Glasper, who took home the Best R&B Album Grammy for “Black Radio III.” The album, which is an extension of his Black Radio series, features a blend of new and returning collaborators and was later expanded with additional tracks in “Black Radio III: The Supreme Edition.”

Glasper’s influence extends beyond his albums, with his work as a producer on significant albums like Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp a Butterfly” and contributions to the film industry with scores for documentaries on Luther Vandross and Billy Preston. His presence in the industry is further solidified with a series of accolades, including 12 Grammy nominations and 5 wins, showcasing his versatility and impact across genres.
