Robert Glasper's Black Radio received justifiable critical acclaim for its seamless, accessible, groundbreaking blur of jazz, hip-hop, neo-soul, and rock, and achieved a level of marketplace success that even the artist couldn't anticipate. By contrast, Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP goes boldly into more exploratory terrain. Glasper isn't afraid to get sonic. These six tracks -- five remixes from the album and an unreleased track from the BR sessions -- dig deeper into beats, synthetic soundscapes, samples, and the more outré regions of the Robert Glasper Experiment's musical world. Things don't sound that weird from the jump, however. First up is 9th Wonder's remix of "Afro Blue," with Phonte's rap complementing Erykah Badu's vocal; the production has a very Foreign Exchange kind of feel. The title track moves things along with Pete Rock stripping it dubwise; bass and beats rumble amid samples, the Experiment shifts in and further in, while Yasiin Bey's rapid-fire rap is pushed right up front for crunch. This is jazzed-up hip-hop with teeth. ?uestlove's remix of Little Dragon's "Twice," with Solange Knowles and the Roots, is a real highlight. The addition of stringed instruments, bells, and layered effects under Glasper's crystalline piano melds spiritual jazz and cosmic soul into a glorious spacy whole. Glasper and Jewels' take on "Letter to Hermione" adds Black Milk's off-meter rhyme to Bilal's vocal. The shimmering repetitive piano atop the snare and hi-hat rhythm track underscores the refrain and gradually morphs into a complex coda. The big treat here is the nine-plus-minute "Dillalude #2," a tribute to J Dilla (complete with Ma Dukes' intro via voicemail for authenticity). While the track has made its way into the RGE's live set, its recorded version is chock-full of tidbits from Dilla's various productions. Glasper even goes so far as to offer his own insertions of Bobby Caldwell's "Open Your Eyes" (which Dilla sampled for Common's "The Light" from 2000's Like Water for Chocolate) before quoting from the melody of Burt Bacharach's "The Look of Love" and then moving back. Chris Dave's read of Dilla's trademark drum shuffle slow cooks it throughout. Black Radio Recovered, with its nocturnal, hall-of-mirrors vibe, exponentially extends the reach of the original album's source material without losing its heart.

Jazz: A Woman's World

Excluding singers, women in jazz haven’t had an easy time making their way to the front of the stage. There are of course the likes of Mary Lou Williams, Jaimie Branch, Geri Allen and Alice Coltrane. But up until recently, female jazz artists have been few and far between in the male-dominated and at times rather sexist genre.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.
