My favorite music is new music and Esperanza Spalding gave me all I could handle at The Queen in Wilmington. I’m not very familiar with all her work but I knew she’s won 4 Grammys since she hit the scene in 2011, so I thought I’d check her out.

Spalding performed a musical she calls’Emily’s D+Evolution on Stage’ along with a guitar player, drummer and 3 vocalist. I’m rarely at a loss for words, but what they brought can only be described as Cosmic.
