Song of the Day: "Endangered Species"
If you looked at the list of Best New Artist Grammy nominees and thought "who the fuck is Esperanza Spalding" you're not alone. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that she's from Portland, OR, ergo she's cool (as are Quarterflash and New [UPDATE: thanks Eric] Nu Shooz)--here she is covering an old Wayne Shorter track. This sounds suspiciously like jazz, but it's jazz from Portland, ergo it's tolerable.
