Esperanza Spalding

Esperanza Spalding is typically referred to as a bassist, vocalist and composer. However like most organisms growing in response to their environment, Esperanza is emerging into something she does not yet understand, nor is able to clarify through reference or language. Some of the primary cells directing this emergent artistic organism could be named: poetry, magic, staging, theater, opera, sound-spells, improvisation, movement, dance, bio-geometry, reiki, nothing, bad-art, fake-art, listening, smells, dream-talk, dialogue, demonic therapy, cat-tongue. Also: f*ck accolades.
