My First Date with Esperanza Spalding

Hey,
So the name « Esperanza Spalding, » is now getting an enormous amount of attention on the internet, and I have to confess before she won that little Gram Gram statue, I had no idea who she was.

Did a Jazz musician really win Best New Artist this year?

Anyway,
I love the double bass, I love the bass guitar, I love compositions for the bass and bass guitar, so this bassist seems like she would be a perfect fit for someone like me. However, despite my obsession with Bassies, I am not that big of a Jazz fan.


In this live song, she is rather awesome though. There is energy, and there is also what some people refer to as SOUL. Whether you like Jazz or not, this song and performance is awesome.

But in this video below, I really lose a lot of the sensual energy. I think the bass is extremely well-played, but the arrangement is just not for me. She has a good voice, but it is not sitting well with me because of that silly Je ne sais quoi.


She is definitely worth checking out though.

QATFYG :
Are you one of those people that refers to things as SOUL ?

    QATY: Do you have a soul?

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!
