About this item

The pianist’s acclaimed, ambitious Blue Note debut, originally recorded at Brooklyn’s Systems Two studios during May 2005.
Featuring Vicente Archer (bass) and Damon Reid (drums), plus special guest appearances from Mark Turner (tenor sax) on two tracks and Bilal (vocals) on ‘Chant’, “Canvas” features nine original Glasper compositions plus a famous cover version of Herbie Hancock’s ‘Riot’ (which originally appeared on Miles Davis’s Nefertiti album). Rooted in acoustic jazz but with fascinating glimpses of Glasper’s Blue Note future with its jittery, hip-hop-influenced grooves and rolling chord sequences, this remarkable debut put Glasper right in the spotlight.
