Editorial Review

The 25-year-old singer, bass player and composer has gained steady acclaim in the jazz and world music communities for her facility in blending Brazilian folk, jazz and pop. Hear her perform songs from her 2010 release, "Chamber Music Society." On the album, Spalding reinterprets the traditional string ensemble and adds drums, piano, and her voice to the mix.
