    James Jamerson

    James Lee Jamerson (January 29, 1936 August 2, 1983) was an American bass player. He was the uncredited bassist on most of Motown Records' hits in the 1960s and early 1970s (Motown did not list session musician credits on their releases until 1971), and he has become regarded as one of the most influential bass players in modern music history. He was inducted into ...

    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.

    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!)
