Esperanza Spalding - A True Pure Jazz Heartist

MusicLoad.Com presents Esperanza Spalding

You may have already seen her on The Late Show with David Letterman or on Jimmy Kimmel Live and she has been in hundreds of places between here and there, even playing for heads of state and President Obama. But in this big bad world, artists who travel that wide can still remain too far under the radar. MusicLoad.Com is happy to be is just one more little venue for this inspired and gifted multi-genre jazz core artist.

Everything about Esperanza Spalding is a breath of fresh air. As a bassist myself, I appreciate any upright players who can sing and play upright at the same time and she takes it to a whole other level than most. Esperanza is as sweet and beautiful, as you will see in this local CBS TV interview and performance, as she is articulate with her vocals and jazz style. GC



Here is a great Esperanza Spalding performance as she plays electric bass and sings like a true jazz great on Jimmy Kimmel Live with her song entitled I Know You Know

A MusicLoad favorite band, SHEL, signs to Universal Republic Records.

The fine all sister group SHEL really blows my mind. The four sisters, Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza are real musicians and they know how to put on a performance. Their music is not manufactured. SHEL is the opposite of a pop star creations from American Idol. They are crafting their own songs, writing the arrangements and playing all of the instruments. Sure, they have guests and collaborators, but the girls are in the driver's seat. So, it was the greatest news to hear, that the group has signed to Universal Republic Records, a Universal Music Group (UMG) company. In their video below, they signed their contracts with Jethro Tull blasting in the background. Too cool. GC
