A luminous artist with a magnetic stage presence and brilliant chops as an improviser, composer, bassist and vocalist Esperanza Spalding is grounded in jazz traditions but never bound by them. Her visionary, “funky yet cerebral” (Downbeat) musical voyages and performances with partners from Herbie Hancock to Prince have won her four Grammy┬« awards and a worldwide fan base. Come for an electric, exhilarating evening that sees her unwrap a new violin and piano commission from the Library.
