Esperanza Spalding Releases "Radio Song"

Image
I was first introduced to Esperanza through the natural hair community. Others may know her as the first jazz artist to win Best New Artist for the 2011 Grammy Awards. However you know her, once you hear her sultry smooth voice and funky jazz fusion tracks....you fall for her. She is at it again and proving to her critics that she deserved the Grammy title. Her latest album, "Radio Music Society", is set to release March 20, 2012. Her debut song, "Radio Song", has that smooth jazzy beat that you find yourself rocking to within seconds of pushing play. The rest of her album does not disappoint. It displays her diversity and talent. Rich with strings, horns, and keys....and lets not forget that voice. I can just lay back and chill to this one. The girl's got talent!

I know how much we ALL love our luscious curls and kinks, and sometimes its SOOOOO hard to keep our hands out. If you are anything like me you enjoy twirling, pattin', and fluffing your do'. There is a consequence to all that touching.....Pesky Knots!!

The correct term for these tiny single strand knots is Trichonodosis.
