27 Days to Tri-C Jazzfest: Esperanza Spalding

I am currently listening to “Cinnamon Tree” from the new project Black Radio Society from Esperanza Spalding.  Esperanza is the first Jazz artist to win a Grammy for Best New Artist.  Thumbs up for Jazz!

Jazz is such a true representation when you say the word “music”.  The musician can convey every emotion thru their instrument that is written in lyric form for other genres. That is not to say that there are no Jazz offerings with lyrics, in fact this particular song tells of her affection and admiration for a certain someone whose essence is like the spice cinnamon. But even if there was not a single word said, from the intro of the upright you can tell this is a story of love and passion.  Jazz in it’s purest form has composition that is a true expression of the heart of the artist, and when lyrics are found to it they usually have an incredible marriage.

If you love Jazz, The Tri-C Jazzfest this year is presenting Esperanza, as well as a host of other artists.  While I will be blogging about the festival day by day in attendance,  I will share with you as much about each artist or event night as I can over the next 26 days leading up to the festival so that you can fully appreciate the richness of what we have here in Cleveland April 19-29,2012 at various arenas around the city. It is arguably the largest Jazz festival in the Midwest, filled with 10 days and nights of education and excellent offerings of music from the local to national and international status.  Last year we were treated to Ndugu Chancler, Sean Jones, Smokey Robinson, Tia Fuller, Robert Glasper and more.  This year is just as incredible.

TICKETS ARE GOING FAST!  Don’t miss out.  This year, treat yourself to a concert or 2. Or 4.  They are also featuring discount group rates, so get a gathering together and I will see you there!

Esperanza Spaldings’ new project available now on Amazon, iTunes and CD Baby. Be sure to hear her live at the Tri-C Jazzfest Thursday April 19, Tri-C Metro Auditorium. Go to http://www.tricpresents.com for ticket purchase information.
