Girl Gone Bad: Esperanza Spalding

YouTube It
Check out Ms. Spalding in action in the following YouTube clips.


Shot live in San Sebastian, Spain, in 2009, this clip shows Spalding and her band playing a spirited version of “I Know You Know,” plus some inspired blowing on both upright and electric.


At this January 2009 tribute to Stevie Wonder at the White House, Spalding is stunning in so many ways—with her slippery upright playing, her sultry voice, her classy couture, and her beautiful smile.


In this gorgeously moody clip, Spalding proves she’s as adept with a bow as she is playing fingerstyle—and the vocal work is mind blowing.
