Music: Esperanza Spalding at Hollywood's Music Box Theater

April 25, 2012

MUSIC

Unfortunately on the cusp of being considered less of an individual artist and more of an avatar for an entire genre since her headline-grabbing win at the 2011 Grammys, Esperanza Spalding shifts the focus back to her unique vision with a concert from the much-anticipated follow-up, "Radio Music Society." Those who pinned their hopes on Spalding as the savior of jazz may alter their expectations based on the album, which merges jazz with liberal helpings of funk, pop and R&B with guests that include vocalist Algebra Blesset. But then again, maybe those hopes are just fine where they are. Music Box Theater, 6126 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, 8 p.m. Fri. $41. http://www.ticketmaster.com.
