Austin City Limits: Esperanza Spalding
This Saturday, March 22 at 11pm, tune into Rocky Mountain PBS for Esperanza Spalding on Austin City Limits.
In her highly-anticipated return to ACL, Spalding, along with a stellar 11-piece band, performs songs from her latest release Radio Music Society, which scored two 2013 Grammy Awards, including Best Jazz Vocal Album. The album represents a celebratory vision of the artists who helped cultivate and inspire Spalding’s career throughout the years. Radio Music Society has received high praise from critics, who hail the album’s “journey through soul, gospel, balladry and big-band swing” [The New York Times] and “torchy swaggers, world-jazzy guitar grooves propelling smoky saxes, and political songs with only a Hammond organ for company” [The Guardian].
