Esperanza Spalding made a massive impact as the first jazz artist to win the coveted Grammy Award for best New Artist in 2011 - a triumph over the pop might of Justin Beiber. Singer, song-writer, bassist and dramatic performer.
If ‘Esperanza’ marked a brilliant beginning for this gifted young artist, then Spalding’s latest release, Chamber Music Society, sets her on an upward trajectory to prominence. Inspired by the classical training of her younger years, Spalding has created a modern chamber music group that combines the spontaneity and intrigue of improvisation with sweet and angular string trio arrangements. The result is a sound that weaves the innovative elements of jazz, folk and world music into the enduring foundations of classical chamber music traditions.
