Have you ever looked for a good jazz cd to listen to while you’re at your desk, or while you’re reading, or maybe while you’re eating dinner? I know just the artist. She’s Esperanza Spalding, a young and extremely talented jazz bassist and singer. At 24, she has already toured with Patti Austin and released two cds, Junjo in 2006 and Esperanza in 2008. Many have described her music as jazz fusion and I think I agree.
Check out this interview, where she talks about what it’s like to be on the faculty at the Berklee College of Music and she sings a wonderful song entitled Precious, which is featured on her Esperanza album. So, listen to Esperanza Spalding today. I’m sure that regardless of what you’re doing, she’ll fit in well with your plans.
