Covered may be most memorable, however, for its powerful commentary on and contributions to the current movement against racial injustice. It will be released June 16. Instead, the value of recording live in this case is largely that it helped to cultivate a particular kind of energy in the music, privileging the spontaneous, unpredictable interactions between musicians and audience members, and reveling in the feeling of risk that comes from the knowledge that the first take is probably the take.

Jurek also states how this album shows how Glasper refuses to be pigeon holed into any musical category.
I'm one of the ones of color who got over. The album reunites Glasper with bassist Vicente Archer and drummer Damion Reid, reforming the trio that created his first two Blue Notes releases, Canvas 2005 and In My Element 2007. It is also welcome as one of the few times that Archer and Reid have opportunities to shine as soloists.
