Esperanza Spalding, jazz bassist and singer. She draws upon many genres in her own compositions. She won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist, making her the 1st - and only - jazz artist to win the award. In addition to uptight bass, she can play bass guitar, oboe & clarinet, and sing in English, Spanish & Portuguese. After her graduation from Berklee College of Music, she was hired by the college, becoming one of the youngest instructors in the institution's history, at age 20.
Dorothy Ashby, jazz harpist - A rare treat is her album "The Fantastic Jazz Harp of Dorothy Ashby" or the single "Flighty." Check them out if you ever have the opportunity to do so. RARE but GREAT music! Hard to find but worth seeking.
The Bubble Puppy came out with one great album before they disappeared due to legal complications with their label. They moved from Austin, Texas to Ellay and reformed as Demian and did a second album which I never even heard of until three decades later. This album was magic though. The guitars were killer and the playing was just the best. The band was a total mystery too. Not anymore and they are still going, at least two of them are.
