    Esperanza Spalding

    A year or so ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Esperanza Spalding for Thunder Row. Since that time, a lot of folks have joined the Row so we thought, since Ms. Spalding won Best New Artist at the Grammy's last year, we'd re-run the interview of this exceptional talent, so you could get to know her better. Read on!

    Okay, here's a riddle for you. Who's an exceptional bassist, an incredible singer, a fabulous and original songwriter, has an infectious laugh, has played at the White House as well as with Stevie Wonder and a cartload of other headliners and, incidentally, is almost single-handedly changing the face of contemporary jazz, (and several other genres)? Her name is Esperanza Spalding. She's twenty-four, poised, gracious, and a delight, as you're about to see. (Esperanza, incidentally, is Spanish for hope, and we hope you'll get to know her!)

    From the Post And Courier

    The Motown sound was largely defined by a modest 13-member house band that worked with such stars as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and many others.

    They were called the Funk Brothers, and they included Edisto Island native James Jamerson on bass. The Funk Brothers are getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. The commemorative star will be positioned next to the stars of Dizzy Gillespie (another South Carolina native), Thelonious Monk and Herbie Hancock.

    Roger Fisher and Steve Fossen have been friends for nearly 50 years. They were part of the first sophomore class at Inglemoor High School, shared the same homeroom and played their first gigs around the Kenmore and Bothell area. In (April for web) two weeks they will do one more big thing together - officially become “Rock Gods.”
