Robert Glasper & Erykah Badu- “Afro Blue”

New Musicadmin1 Comment

Erykah Badu and Robert Glasper take on the Mongo Santamaría classic "Afro Blue" in this cover. This modern arrangement is absolutely gorgeous. The beat is real punchy, keyboard is really warm and calming, and the flutes are a really classy touch. Of course the classiest thing on the track is Badu's voice, but that goes without saying. The total package lives up to the original and the Coltrane cover that helped make it famous.

This track is set to drop on Glasper's forthcoming album, Black Radio, which is set to drop in February.
