Renaissance man Robert Glasper returns to Philly tonight to headline World Cafe Live. After following up his critically acclaimed Black Radio LP with the equally impressive Black Radio 2 last year, Glasper found out last week that the record netted two Grammy nominations. It’s up for Best R&B Album (the first installment was also nominated and won Best R&B album) and the song “Jesus Children” featuring Lalah Hathaway and Malcolm is up for Best Traditional R&B performance.
