WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

If "esperanza" is the Spanish word for hope, then bassist, vocalist and composer Esperanza Spalding could not have been given a more fitting name. Blessed with uncanny instrumental chops, a multi-lingual voice that is part angel and part siren and a natural beauty that borders on the hypnotic, the 25-year-old prodigy-turned-pro might well be the hope for the future of jazz and instrumental music. With her new project, Chamber Music Society, Esperanza takes a contemporary approach to a form of entertainment that is centuries old. Inspired by the classical training of her younger years, Esperanza has created a modern chamber music group that combines the spontaneity and intrigue of improvisation with sweet and angular string trio arrangements that encompass elements of jazz, folk and world music. Chamber Music Society is not just for classical or jazz connoisseurs, but rather a sound where both can find common ground.
