Now im sure lots of you out there could amaze me with your disco vinyl artwork knowledge…so go on then fools ;) !

Esperanza Spalding – Wow!!

Just found out about an amazing singer & bassist with the coolest name as well as a fro to die for! Esperanza Spalding hails from Portland Oregon USA and has been touted as the hope for the future of jazz music which is a very big ask for such a dainty looking 23 year old. Listening to her music or watchin her perform soon clears up any doubt though, this fly chica is uber talented and so mesmerizing to watch. I’ve never seen a singing ‘stand up bass’ player especially one so Black Panther styled as the fabulous Esperanza, whose passion and dedication to the genre is shown by such an awesome talent. Her self titled album came out last May, my favourites so far ‘Fall In‘, ‘She Got to You‘ and ‘I Adore‘ which is bumping in the background right now. If you like ya jazz your gonna love you some Esperanza Spalding *clicks fingers* and if your in Europe shes touring there right now you lucky things….just not in the UK :(
