Upton Bass Endorse! 


This was a good week for Jazz...and a good week for the double bass!  Esperanza Spalding was nominated for a Grammy as Best New Artist.  This marked the first time a Jazz musician was nominated in a category historically dominated by pop musicians.  And while most of the world was ready for Justin Bieber or Drake to take the award...Esperanza won!

Esperanza's youth, fashion and most importantly musicianship will shine new light on both Jazz and the Double Bass.  It's a heavy torch to carry...but I think Esperanza is ready for it!  Congratulations Esperanza!

So, without further ado, I bring you some Friday night double bass goodness!

And remember...if you have ANY links, news, videos, etc. you want to share (really...please...share!), eMail it to me at eroy@uptonbass.com and I'll be sure to share it.  Oh...and if you just want to say "Hi" you can do that too!

Have a nice weekend!

I thought this video was nicely done and shows you a bit about Esperanza if you haven't checked her out yet.  ~ Eric
