'Freedom Jazz Dance' by Esperanza Spalding & Bobby McFerrin / Track of the Day

A little treat for ‘Throwback Thursday’: Watch Esperanza Spalding* and Bobby McFerrin’s duet at the 2011 Grammy Awards ceremony, performing Eddie Harris’s classic tune Freedom Jazz Dance.

*Esperanza took home the Grammy for ‘Best New Artist’ that year.

"There use to be a point where I would be afraid of making mistakes. I’m no longer afraid of making mistakes. I make them every night during a performance. Something happens: I meant for my voice to go right and it went left instead. I meant for my voice to go up and it goes down, you know. Wherever my voice goes, wherever it takes me I just follow it. I just watch it. It leads me to whatever, you know. I trust it."
