Esperanza Spalding

“I Can’t Help It”

Try not to drool on your keyboard.  This is Esperanza Spalding, dream girl to bassists everywhere.  I originally came across her because I was looking for other artists that played the upright bass so I could have some more inspiration, and this was the first video I saw.  Obviously it made my day.  Heres hoping it makes yours and inspires you to check her out.  It is WELL worth your time I assure you.  If you feel so inclined, listen to “Tell Him” next.
