[NOTEWORTHY] …with Collagically Speaking, R+R=NOW offers a distinct blend of urban musical elements

R+R=NOW is a collective of like-minded boundary-breakers featuring Robert Glasper, Terrace Martin, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, Derrick Hodge, Taylor McFerrin & Justin Tyson. The “R+R” in the band’s name stands for Reflect+Respond and was inspired by Nina Simone who said an artist’s duty is to reflect the times. With Collagically Speaking the band presents an urgent musical hybrid that is distinct from the now.

As Glasper says, R+R=NOW tells “our story from our point of view… It’s a very honest, fluid sound that rings of hip-hop, EDM, jazz, at times – hell – reggae… a bunch of cats that respect each other so much that we always pass the ball.” The album features guest spots by Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, Stalley, Amanda Seales, Amber Navran, Goapele, Jahi Sundance, and Yasiin Bey. ~Editorial Reviews | Amazon
