Esperanza Spalding on ‘The Tonight Show’

Last night something odd happened. New, niche music meshed with humdrum drool … and it was kind of cool. Bassist and one of our hair inspiration’s Esperanza Spalding took the stage on NBC’s stodgy “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. She performed after Adam Sandler and a comedian most well-known for his impersonations of hick cable guys sat on the show’s couch and dawdled about nothing. Then, ‘fro in tow, Esperanza took the stage and rocked. Here’s the video below, fast forward to the very last break if you’d like the see Esperanza. Also, if you’re wondering what she does to keep up that mane, click here to read our interview with Ms. Spalding. Enjoy!
