Esperanza Spalding

The bassist and vocalist conceived of Chamber Music Society as an intimate experience, a close musical exchange between a small group of friends. If it was intimacy she wanted, she got her wish: Performing three songs in the constraints of Bob Boilen's workspace ensures that all of her supporting players were nice and cozy.

Stars

With only Evan Cranley's acoustic guitar for accompaniment, Stars' Amy Millan and Torquil Campbell take two of the fizziest dance-pop tracks on The Five Ghosts (plus 2005's "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead") and transform them into chiming, charming folk songs, performed live at NPR Music.
