Watch Esperanza Spalding Perform 'Emily's D+Evolution' Live And Direct

It was just last week that Esperanza Spalding dropped her funk bomb of a new album, Emily’s D+Evolutionto much acclaim from critics and civilians alike. And while we here at OKP HQ have spent much of the days since the album’s release attempting to absorb that rich and dense piece of musical tapestry, Spalding given us yet another way to take it in, performing much of the album live and direct for an audience at Brooklyn’s BRIC House last week. Luckily for you and I, the good folks at NPR were there to capture it all through pristine lens and have made the clip available for all the world to see. You can watch Esperanza Spalding bring Emily’s D+Evolution to life in the clip below and while you’re down there, peep the full list of her forthcoming tour dates to experience it all in-the-flesh.
