In February, it was first announced that Robert Glasper will return to Napa Valley this summer as the 2023 Artist in Residence at the second annual Blue Note Jazz Festival. In 2022, Glasper curated and performed at the inaugural weekend—a collaboration inspired by his annual residency at the legendary New York jazz club—with headlining artists including Snoop Dogg, Chaka Khan, Maxwell, Dinner Party, Madlib, Thundercat, Flying Lotus, Domi & JD Beck and Corinne Bailey Rae.
