Treats: Esperanza Spalding – Radio Song

2011 Grammy-winning jazz bassist, vocalist, and composer Esperanza Spalding’s new album, Radio Music Society, is her most diverse, ambitious and masterful recital to date. It expands the cast to include jazz legends Joe Lovano, Jack DeJohnette and Billy Hart, hip-hop giant Q-Tip, Algebra Blessett, Lalah Hathaway, Gretchen Parlato and Lionel Loueke, among an array of notable vocalists. The 12 songs are accompanied by 11 conceptual music videos, which further express Esperanza’s inspiration and story behind the songs. Shot in various locations from New York City to Barcelona and Portland, all of the videos will be available with the digital download and the deluxe DVD version.

Enjoy Esperanza’s treat, her single, “Radio Song” from the new album.

  1. So boring. Why such a gifted bass player wastes time with old funkish watery pop music like this, making jamiroquai a Personality and old Stevie a kind of unreachable Bach/Beethoven of the field? She’s great but makes such trivial sounds every time I cannot avoid to listen to her music. A pity

    1. Thanks for sharing your opinion. So would you prefer her creating something close to Chamber Music Society? What would you feel should change on the sophomore album?
