Khevre in benefit concert, Cambridge, MA, Oct 7, 2007

7 pm: Esperanza Spalding Duo

Hailed as a prodigy turned rising star on both bass and voice (and performing on both simultaneously!), Esperanza Spalding has performed with Joe Lovano, Pat Metheny, Patti Austin and many other jazz greats, and tours the world with her own groups. Her music combines jazz, latin, pop and other influences in a way that sparkles with originality. You'd pay a lot more to see her next time she's in Boston, so come check it out!
