Esperanza Spalding Performs Hold On Me Live for IHeart Radio

This is a great live performance by Esperanza Spalding of her song, Holding On, from the Radio Music Society CD. The song features clever lyrics about obsessive love. It is a very traditional jazz arrangement on the CD, and this live one is even better. Esperanza starts out singing with just her bass, and lays on us a Mingus-like bass solo. There are plenty of opportunities for the musicians in her band to solo as well. You can see why Esperanza is blowing away live audiences this summer.
