You already know that Esperanza Spalding is jazz, but she will be revealing more of her soul on her new album, Radio
Music Society, when its released on Tuesday, March 20th. When you do listen to her latest, you may find yourself stuck on track number two, "Cinnamon Tree." The song
reminds me of mixing brown sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkling it on my morning toast. It's a sweet and spicy heart-tingling kind of good. It's about the powerful love
that you can have towards someone who feels, tastes, and looks cinnamony. The guitars in the
background bring funk to her soulful voice, and you can hear her love-filled smile when she sings.
I found myself swaying and wondering about this "sweet seasoning" of a man she was referring
to. This song makes me want to fall in love, and you might have the same reaction to it after listening.
