Congrats to Esperanza Spalding: Best New Artist – Grammy Awards

In the past few days I have heard a lot of  “Who is Esperanza Spalding??”  I just wanted to take a quick moment to tell you how happy I am that she has been recognized because she is SO talented.  4 years ago I was hired to photograph a jazz festival in Burlington, Vermont.  I spent 10 days photographing a ton of different musicians.  Esperanza’s performance is the one I remember most.  I just remember when she started playing I was thinking, “Who is this woman??”  Her charisma, charm and talent were very impressive.  She is an incredible bassist and jazz vocalist.  Since moving back to Seattle I went to see her perform at Jazz Alley and once again she was fantastic. If you have not heard her before you should have a listen!  Here is a photo I took of her at the Discover Jazz Festival.
