Albums of the Year # 20 Esperanza Spalding

Probably the most unpredictable and bravest record on this list. Esperanza Spalding's album Emily's D+Evolution, never stands still for a single moment. Shifting from space to space countless times during the course of each individual track. It's probably the closest thing to a Jazz record on the here but again that's a term that doesn't fully contain it. Not a soothing listen entirely but an incredibly impressive one. One that also has its feet firmly planted in 2016 which isn't the case for all it finds around it on this list, much as love its companions.
