Psst. It’s a new jazz-hip-hop supergroup featuring pianist Robert Glasper, sax players Kamasi Washington and Terrace Martin, and producer 9th Wonder — along with versatile Chicago vocalist Phoelix on several cuts. As you might expect from a top-shelf cast like this, their easygoing and stylishly superb debut finds them all joining forces, playing to their individual strengths and hitting the sweet spot between their styles — all without stepping on each other’s toes. Anyone for seconds?
