‘Everything’s Beautiful’ Featured In The Village Voice

“Robert Glasper is a bad motherfucker,” says Vince Wilburn Jr. “And he’s a soulful motherfucker.” He’s joyfully describing the Grammy-winning pianist-composer known for his melding of jazz, r&b, and hip-hop.

Wilburn should know about badness: He’s the nephew of Miles Davis, who he drummed for in the Eighties; co-manager of his uncle’s estate; and a producer of both the recent Don Cheadle biopic Miles Ahead and Glasper’s forthcoming album, Everything’s Beautiful.

The record, a smart collage-like reimagining of Davis’s music, comes out May 27, a day after what would’ve been the jazz giant’s ninetieth birthday. Although it’s a separate project from the movie, it’s a knowing complement to the soundtrack, which features beloved pieces such as “So What” and “Nefertiti,” voiceovers of Cheadle as Davis, and four originals by Glasper, who also scored the film.
