Radio Music Society
Who is Esperanza Spalding, you may ask? She’s the charismatic acoustic jazz bassist and vocalist that snatched the Best New Artist Grammy out of the hands of Justin Bieber last year...and one of the biggest recent breakout stars — not just in jazz, but in all genres of music. Embracing the rhythms and stagecraft of pop and rock, her compositions are sleek, soulful and jazzy, with touches of R&B, Brazilian, classical chamber music and improvisation all woven in.
Spalding’s latest release, Radio Music Society, is her most diverse, ambitious and masterful recital yet.
