[EN] Esperanza Spalding

Meet Esperanza Spalding. Small girl, big bass. Another fine network television debut on Letterman last Wednesday (“the coolest person we’ve ever had on this show”). Not necessarily my kind of jazz, but the combination of bass and vocals is not very common. Enticing lyrics as well, though there is a limit on the amount of syllables you can squeeze into a certain amount of time, Esperanza .. I especially like the sparing use of the snare drum in this song. Just underlining the rhythm at the exact right places.
