Esperanza Spalding 
Grammy-winning jazz artist Esperanza Spalding embarks on her Emily’s D+Evolution Tour in a couple weeks, and she’ll be stopping at LPR for a show on Friday, May 15!
Watch Spalding talk about the tour in this new video:

Here’s her explanation of the origins of her new project, via
“’Emily’ is my middle name, and I’m using this fresh persona as my inner navigator. This project is about going back and reclaiming un-cultivated curiosity, and using it as a compass to move forward and expand.  My hope for this group is to create a world around each song, there are a lot of juicy themes and stories in the music.  We will be staging the songs as much as we play them, using characters, video, and the movement of our bodies.”
Spalding’s Emily’s D+Evolution Tour comes to LPR on 5/15. Get your tickets here.
