Steven Bensusan, President of Blue Note Entertainment Group, shared that the vision behind the Blue Note Jazz Festival Napa Valley was inspired by Glasper’s Robbober stay, held last fall in New York.
“Glasper is hosting a month of shows and collaborations spanning the genres of jazz, R&B, hip hop, soul and comedy, resulting in impromptu performances from celebrities and unannounced special guests,” Bensusan said. .
“We plan to create an outdoor festival-style version of Robbober in the spirit of a traditional jazz festival with spontaneous collaborations and unique improvised performances.
Glasper is equally thrilled to be part of this event. “I can’t wait to host a festival with some of my favorite artists with my boy Dave Chappelle in Napa. On a vineyard with music and wine?! He’s coming down! Come drink wine with us!
