Esperanza Spalding is always developing her art and skills as a world-renowned composer, bassist and vocalist. She is musically grounded in jazz traditions but never bound by them, as she bends and blends genres in new and surprising ways. Next to winning four Grammy awards, Spalding has shared the stage with stars like Herbie Hancock and Prince. At the Melbourne Jazz Festival 2016, she presents her fifth studio album, Emily's D+Evolution. The album tells the story of her alter ego, with the storyline supported by video, characters and body movement. In this 4K recorded show, Matt Steven (guitar), Justin Tyson (drums), and Emily Elbert (vocals) join Esperanza Spalding in creating a not to be missed phenomenal show!
