Here is one of the more interesting and worthwhile

IndieGoGo funding campaigns to come our

way lately. It’s for the concert film/documentary, Of Dreams To Come: Robert Glasper, which is about the acclaimed jazz pianist and the winner

for this year’s Grammy Award for the Best

R&B Album of the YearRobert Glasper and his band, The Robert Glasper Experiment.

According to director J. Kevin Swain, who has

spent more than a decade producing music videos and directing documentaries and

TV movies, including Soul Train: The Hippest Trip in America for VH1, says the film “will echo the early tour films of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Look

Back”. U2’s “Rattle and Hun” and Patti Smith’s “Dream of

Life.  

And the film will contain footage and performances which

Swain and his crews have been filming in Europe, Asia, South America, Africa

and the United States.during the past several months.

Swain says that his goal is to document “Robert Glasper’s music and artistry which  is appreciated from the four corners of the

globe, it is an important endeavor to chronicle this moment in history and will

also will showcase Robert as a musician, father, bandleader and friend.
