With her ample talent and beauty, singer, bassist and composer Esperanza Spalding instantly found herself ranked among the darlings of the Festival... and the entire world, as amply attested by her 2010 Grammy for Best New Artist-the first time the award had gone to a jazz musician in 35 years. After wowing us as a jazz soloist and with a string trio, she returns with her new album, Radio Music Society
, which explores song forms and melodies that are formatted along the lines of what one would categorize as pop songs. Every Esperanza concert announcement is an event, and this time again, we're literally salivating over the opportunity to discover a new facet of her inestimable talent! And best of all, we know we'll have room to dance to it in Métropolis!
