While musically far afield of Simone's own literate, bluesy piano-and-vocal style of jazz, R+R Now's debut album, 2018's Collagically Speaking, has a cinematic quality that speaks to Glasper's original impulse to make music inspired by Simone's artistically adventurous, socially and politically minded work.
The outfit’s debut album is called Collagically Speaking and is due out on June 15th. Its 11 tracks, which span a variety of genres and styles, were written in the studio and recorded in a single take, thus allowing them to go wherever this formidable crew’s mood goes. I love the first take because it’s the most honest take, Glasper says. Check out Collagically Speaking’s artwork and tracklist below.

Mixing Quiet Storm R&B, 1970s jazz-funk fusion, cosmic soul, and instrumental hip-hop, Collagically Speaking features a cross-section of top-tier musicians lending their voices to the fluid set. They have all made significant waves on their own, either as established solo artists or well-known studio musicians. While the album’s open-endedness largely works to its benefit, Collagically Speaking occasionally meanders. Played back to back, Awake to You and By Design feel like one 13-minute composition that lingers too long without adequate progression.
