Esperanza Spalding took the honors for "Best New Artist" at the Grammy's last night; upsetting (in at least two senses of the word) countless Justin Bieber fans. If you search for realtime trends on Twitter, you see that the references divide neatly into a few categories: "Esperanza Who?", "Well-Deserved Win for *Real* Music", and many in Portugese (which I can't interpret).
Esperanza Spalding is a young and talented bassist, singer, and composer who graduated from the Berklee College of Music not too long ago. And yes... she's really pretty, too (let's not forget that this is still showbiz). She has three CDs as leader, but is also well-known as the bassist in Joe Lovano's "Us Five" quintet.
Many of us in the jazz department at WHUS are taking this as a small but significant triumph of substance over faddish trends. Don't hate us for that. We rarely get the opportunity to gloat.
If you need convincing that this was not sort of travesty of justice or something, please watch this video.
Is modesty cxateotunl? Are there different standards for what modest should look like in different situations? Just curious. That swimsuit is modest next to a bikini, but would it be modest going grocery shopping? http://udqxuvzyw.com [url=http://qmkerqugmu.com]qmkerqugmu[/url] [link=http://clvprznibnh.com]clvprznibnh[/link]

as I was leaving for work he sales maeangr for the store where I work was proudly showing me her newest post for the stores social media site. A photo of some jewelery taken in front of the stores notebook computer displaying a photograph from Google. She actually believes that this is a valid method of avoiding copyright liability. Having been a long time reader of both you Photoshop user magazine articles and your blog I see it as just another example of a flagrant request to meet new people like intellectual property attorneys (at significant expense).
