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".
D Sound is the brainchild of guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Zsolt Dezso Murguly. The floating atmosphere of his music is very similar to that of Pink Floyd and Mike Oldfield. Kisember (2002) (meaning "Ordinary Man") consists of four main tracks divided into multiple movements, making for 11 tracks on your CD player's display. It features some interesting musical patterns where spiciness abounds (strong guitar play, very Dave Gilmour like) and the band knows how to rock when it wants to. The ethereal and spacey music is certainly pleasant and enjoyable as both background music and the basis for a more serious listen, as various musical themes are repeated throughout the album.
