    Default Esperanza Spalding

    Anyone else of fan? I think she is an immensely talented young lady. I have "Chamber Music Society" on vinyl, and I really like it. I ordered her new one "Radio Music Society" (Deluxe Edition CD) the other day, and it should be here tomorrow...

    Also, I think she's adorable. I just love the afro!!

    I'm still quite devastated at her win over the Biebs for "Best New Artist" at last year's Grammys!! In fact...I can just now talk about it.


    No, really...I've heard great things about her music. Moreso in just the past few months. I'm thinking I would like to try it. Probably will start with "Chamber Music Society". Probably a safe bet since I just love Yo-Yo Ma (pretty much all of it, but "Plays Ennio Marricone" - SACD version - is my favorite).

    Does she have any of her stuff out on SACD?

    No, none of her music is available on SACD at this time. I hope that someday it will be though...

    Wow, I thought there would be some fans of Esperanza here...

    The new CD is great, kind of a mix of Jazz, Soul, and Pop. This girl is quite a breath of fresh air, and it is nice to see artists like her & Adele have success. I highly recommend the deluxe edition with a DVD for $3 more!!

    Did I mention that I think she is a very attractive young lady??

    Yes, a terrific jazz musician. It is good to know that she will be keeping me in tunes for the rest of my life. Here is a profile of her in the New Yorker: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2...fact_colapinto

    LOVE her stuff. I listened to every song off her new album (iTunes samples) and plan on purchasing it tomorrow. Real fresh stuff she's doing.

    Haven't heard her music Rick. I will check it out.
