La canción de la semana #274

In case you didn't know it already, I have a soft spot for bass players. And guess what, I have an even softer spot for female bass players. A couple of years ago, I discovered for myself the young American bassist, vocalist and composer Esperanza Spalding. Earlier this year, she became the first jazz artist to win the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. This week's song is Chacarera from her last album, Chamber Music Society.
