Esperanza Spalding - Meteoric rise - and for every good reason.

Having been suitably blown away the first time I heard Esperanza Spalding a few years ago, I have been completely thrilled to see her meteoric rise to fame in the Jazz community, and to see her music reaching out to a much wider audience.

I managed to locate this concert, featuring Esperanza Spalding and The Chamber Music Society from the 2010 JazznoJazz Festival in Zurich Switzerland from October 28, 2010 and recorded live by Radio Suisse Romande for their Espace 2 channel. It's a little under 90 minutes and it's a wonderful concert, jammed with reasons why Esperanza Spalding is getting the notoriety and accolades she's been getting the past few years.

And, lucky for us, there looks like no end in sight.
