Pianist Robert Glasper has spent a decade merging musical streams: touring with jazz trumpeters Roy Hargrove and Terence Blanchard, all the while leading his own telepathic jazz trio.
His other band, the Robert Glasper Experiment, brings it all together: jazz, hip-hop, R&B. Its album "Black Radio," which features a bunch of high-end stars -- Lalah Hathaway, Mos Def, Erykah Badu -- one of the year's best.
See Glasper and the Experiment Nov. 1 at 8 p.m., Palace of Fine Arts, 3301 Lyons St., San Francisco. $25-$60; 866-920-5299, www.sfjazz.org.
