Bassist, vocalist, composer Esperanza Spalding unveils the brilliant compositions of her new release, Radio Music Society into a dynamic “big band” format. Inspired by her desire to write for large ensembles, Spalding has crafted her performances to spotlight the talents of her 12-piece world class band. Weaving high-caliber artists into the context of a big band could be a challenge, but not for Spalding. Her ability to combine musical styles makes her writing accessible to audiences across the spectrum.
Radio Music Society is a companion release, rather than a sequel, to Spalding’s previous internationally acclaimed Chamber Music Society, which culminated in her winning the Best New Artist GRAMMY® Award in 2011. Radio Music Society is her most diverse, ambitious and masterful recital yet.
