New Album: Esperanza Spalding – Chamber Music Society

Release Date  Tuesday April 17, 2010

Hear thefull album preview as part of NPR’s Exclusive First Listen series.

So glad to hear my favorite jazz musician is releasing her third album next Tuesday. She is truly a gift to the world of jazz, and a very unique artist at that the world of jazz hasn’t seen talent like this in a long time. If you like jazz please support Miss Spalding on next Tuesday, you will not be disappointed.

Considering all the jazz artists who ever have reached a wide audience outside the jazz community, I’m quite happy that Esperanza Spalding is doing it now. – NPR

Esperanza Spalding – Little Fly Music Video

Vodpod videos no longer available.

It’s Spalding’s setting of William Blake’s poem “The Fly,” a metaphysical meditation if there ever was one. She’s chosen to accompany a charming original melody with only her double bass and a string trio: violin, viola and cello, arranged by Gil Goldstein. And after she sings, she plays a little bass solo over pizzicato strings: peppy but compact, accented by wordless vocal flourishes. – NPR
