On Friday March 23, 2012 at 12:30pm J&R is pleased to welcome Esperanza Spalding for an autograph signing for her companion album Radio Music Society. The breakout bassist, vocalist and composer from Portland, Oregon took the jazz world by storm with her debut album Esperanza in 2008 and her chart topping follow up Chamber Music Society in 2010. If anyone had any doubts about Esperanza’s impact on jazz, those doubts were shattered when she became the first jazz musician to win the GRAMMY® Award for Best New Artist.
While her roots are in jazz, her style speaks to other genres that Esperanza explores with her new release, Radio Music Society. This impressive and varied companion performance utilizes enticing music videos that add further depth and understanding to each piece. The videos were shot in various locales ranging from Barcelona, Spain to Esperanza’s hometown of Portland, Oregon. The videos to Radio Music Society will be available with every purchase. A digital download card will be provided with the Standard CD while a DVD will be packed with the Deluxe CD.
Please join us for this wonderful event on Friday March 23. 2012. While you wait take a moment to listen and be drawn in by the commanding talent of Esperanza Spalding. Directions
