Reviews:
To call Ms. Spalding the most talked-about jazz musician in a generation seems almost like an understatement, and beside the point: She’s a phenomenon in human form, unbound by the usual strictures of style.
The New York Times

Esperanza Spalding has quickly demonstrated that she’s an artist of great beauty, grace, and daring…she’s become one of the most exciting artists on the music scene.
DownBeat

There’s no doubt about her striking stage presence, versatile feminine voice, expertise on standup and electric basses, and the unusual joy and passion she radiates.
Variety


Needless to say, any genre-based view of jazz as something that should be hemmed in by any stylistic rules does not apply in her world.
