Although primarily known for jazz, New York’s Blue Note has been getting some high-profile bookings lately. Take the (hmm…) Lauryn Hill residency at the intimate club, or this week’s stint with Mos Def, and now the 4 night Robert Glasper residency featuring Lupe Fiasco and surprise guest Kanye West.

I tried to get in the building, but it was sold out LONG before it even crossed my mind. Until then, the excellent blog It’s All The Way Live has some recordings of the sets to hold me over, and the surprise performance by Kanye West is just the icing on the cake.
