Music Monday

Happy Monday Everyone!

Last week, the official video for Esperanza Spalding’s newest single “Black Gold” featuring Algebra Blessett befittingly premiered on the first day of Black History Month.  This is her first single from her new album Radio Music Society, out on March 20th.  Esperanza is coming strong on Radio Music Society with  top-notch guest musicians and collaborators such as jazz legends Jack DeJohnette and Billy Hart; guitar heroes Jef Lee Johnson and Lionel Loueke; an array of master vocalists including Algebra Blessett, Lalah Hathaway, Gretchen Parlato, Leni Stern and Becca Stevens; hip-hop giant Q-Tip (who performs on and co-produced two tracks); and two Portland-based musicians, Janice Scroggins and Dr. Thara Memory, who provided essential mentorship in Spalding’s youth.

So until March 20th, get a taste of Radio Music Society with “Black Gold”.   Receive a Free Audio Download Of  “City Of Roses” From Esperanza here.  Enjoy!

And for Monday,

The DC Public Library is hosting an all-star evening of music and art. The Herman Burney Trio, with special guest Akua Allrich, will perform music by female African-American jazz greats. And we’ll have the opening reception of Body and Soul: Paintings by J’Nell Jordan and Desiree Sterbini.
