Chamber Music Society by Esperanza Spalding
Released: Aug 2010
Label: Heads Up
A quadruple threat -- musician, vocalist, bandleader and songwriter -- Esperanza Spalding has the freakish talent to be a jazz master, a set of pipes to be huge and the kind of upbeat, life-embracing vibe anyone would want around. This stately, flat-out lovely chamber/jazz album avoids both pretension and timidity, and Spalding is one of the few singers of any era whose wordless scatting is constantly engrossing. A mess of originals are joined by ravishing readings of "Wild Is the Wind" and Tom Jobim's "Inutil Paisagem" (a duet with Gretchen Parlato).
