Deluxe edition includes two bonus tracks. 2016 album from the acclaimed jazz artist. Esperanza Spalding presents Emily's D+Evolution, a rekindling of her childhood interest in theater, poetry and movement, which delves into a broader concept of performance. Taking a new approach to her on-stage persona, the remarkable Spalding taps into new creative energy, delivering musical vignettes inspired during a "sleepless night of full moon inspiration." As she puts it, "Emily is my middle name, and I'm using this fresh persona as my inner navigator. This project is about going back and reclaiming un-cultivated curiosity, and using it as a compass to move forward and expand. My hope for this group is to create a world around each song, there are a lot of juicy themes and stories in the music. We will be staging the songs as much as we play them, using characters, video, and the movement of our bodies".
22-year-old steps out of her famous parents’ shadow with debut album. She arrives with a last name beloved in the music world and dangerously treads in the same footsteps as her parents, who have 26 Grammy Awards combined. And yet Emily Estefan manages to make an impressive splash on her debut album. The 22-year-old daughter of pop superstar Gloria and Emilio Estefan’s Take Whatever You Want is a 14-song shimmering, jazz-influenced beauty she wrote, performed on and produced.
More stripped back and raw than her last release, this hauntingly beautiful album always retains her trademarks - emotive, imagery-rich songs, exquisite piano and guitar arrangements and supremely expressive vocals.
