    Robert Glasper: "I love straight-ahead, and I love RnB; and I'm gonna do soul; and hip hop. That's what jazz is supposed to be: a reflection of the society of the time."

    Glasper brought his Experiment to the UK this month and Jazz on 3 were there at the sell-out Barbican concert to record a band that brings together jazz and improvisation with today's urban music genres.

    Here's a sneak preview of a gig you can hear in full on Monday 4th June at 11pm on BBC Radio 3:
