In 2002 HUSH had the distinct honor of releasing a compelling album by a young trio called Noise for Pretend entitled Happy You Near. At the center was 17 year-old Esperanza Spalding on double bass and vocals. Her pop ensemble lived a short lifespan of little more than a year, owing to her full scholarship offer in Boston. Six years later she’s a graduate (poster child, and youngest faculty member ever) of Berklee College of Music, she’s played stages around the world with jazz giants, and just yesterday she released her second solo record, titled simply Esperanza. It appears that the buzz in the jazz world is spilling over: Esperanza was recently featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and the cover of Bass Player Magazine to name a few. On June 4th she’ll play David Letterman’s Late Show with her trio. It’s likely just the beginning. Congratulations Esperanza!

    you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I
    think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
