Glasper explained his arrangement of “Stella By Starlight” during a recent interview with Revive saying, “I flipped it and re-harmonized it because that song’s been played 5 million times. I didn’t really want to play it the same way as those 5 million other times, so I arranged it to make it more digestible.”

Glas definitely accomplishes this with beloved standard. With a deep pocket and flurries of complex harmony, Glasper’s take on the classic song satisfyingly brings various musical elements together. Scroll down to check out the video for Robert Glasper’s version of “Stella By Starlight.”
