Esperanza Spalding - Some of the finest, most melodic, creative, and tasteful bass -playing you will ever see on an upright bass

In these two videos, Esperanza Spalding performs some of the finest, most melodic, creative, and tasteful bass -playing you will ever see on an upright bass.  These performances are from her appearance at a White House event, "An Evening Of Poetry, Music & The Spoken Word" which took place in 2009. The first video is Esperanza jamming with pianist ELEW. The second video is Esperanza’s interpretation of Lauryn Hill’s Tell Him, singing with the just accompaniment of her double bass.






This video is available for a free download from Youtube.
