Tony's #AlbumArtPorn for the week is #EsperanzaSpalding
A year after winning Best New Artist at the 53 Grammy Awards, Esperanza Spalding went on to release her fourth studio album Radio Music Society and earn her another two Grammys for Best Jazz Vocal Album and Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist for the keytrack. Spalding takes the best features of soul and gospel and incorporates the stylish big band sound into the mix as she provides the low end rumble on electric and acoustic bass, while singing her heart out on top of everything. The music falls in the Contemporary Jazz genre, but with poppy arrangements that reach out farther than the jazz scene, Spalding has the right formula in place to take her music anywhere without the restrictions of a single genre or sound. Pictured above, Spalding sits a top the stereo waiting to greet the listeners. Enjoy!
