Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Do you like the idea of a young lady playing the stand-up bass like a son-of-a-gun? I do.
She sings too, and with feelin’. Esperanza Spalding is one of those sinfully talented people who makes you see that you are totally inadequate and need to barricade yourself in an isolated room and listen to…Esperanza Spalding.
I’m especially fond of her version of “Body and Soul,” called “Cuerpo y Alma.” Look it up sometime.
By the way, her name means Hope.
