Now's the Time: Esperanza Spalding
Esperanza Spalding returns to Kansas City on Friday as a member of Joe Lovano's US 5. It's the bassist's first appearance in the area since she was featured in the Folly Theater's jazz series in 2009. While Spalding's performance in the embedded video is captivating, she'll be offering rhythmic support of Lovano at the Gem Theater. Joe Klopus previewed the show.
