Esperanza Spalding & Milton Nascimento

Damn, as if I didn’t have enough reasons to love Esperanza Spalding…  Spalding’s new LP Chamber Music Society features a duet with one of my all-time favorite artists, legendary Brazilian singer Milton Nascimento:

Esperanza Spalding & Milton Nascimento: Apple Blossom

This collaboration shouldn’t come as a great surprise to Spalding’s fans, the singer/bassist featured Nascimento’s classic Ponta de Areia as the lead-off track on her 2008 LP Esperanza:

If you’re not hip to Milton Nascimento, you’re really missing out. If you’re interested in hearing more, I strongly recommend his 1972 double LP Clube de Esquina, available here.
