Esperanza Spalding — Oct. 24 and Oct. 30

Esperanza Spalding is a genre-bending composer, bassist and vocalist. Her work — grounded in jazz traditions but not bound by them — has won her multiple awards and brought her to the stages of the Oscars, the Nobel Prize Ceremony, the White House and to performances with Prince and Herbie Hancock. Ebony calls Spalding’s latest release Emily’s D+Evolution “a fresh artistic vision for the four-time Grammy winner, a daring tapestry of music, vibrant imagery, performance art and stage design.”
