Esperanza Spalding Performs on ‘The Daily Show’ VIDEO

Jazz singer and bassist Esperanza Spalding stopped by “The Daily Show” to chat up her new album “Radio Music Society.” The Grammy-winner appeared with her band and performed the songs “Crowned & Kissed” and “Black Gold.” She also thoroughly charmed host Jon Stewart who seemed as if he wanted to join her group right there. Stewart, however, won’t be jamming with Spalding anytime soon since he only has the ability to play “air bass.” “I feel like you should be twice as large as you are with the talent that you have,” Stewart told Spalding. Don’t you just love when great jazz artists get the high-profile platform they deserve? Let’s hope the bookers for “Saturday Night Live” tuned in.
