“City of Roses”

Artist: Esperanza Spalding
Album: Radio Music Society (2012)

Portland is known for its brash, intellectual punk and indie rock, but there’s more to this Pacific Northwestern music mecca than hyper-lefty organic-farming enthusiasts shouting about women’s rights over loud guitars. Soulful modern-jazz ambassador Esperanza Spalding hails from the “City of Roses,” and on this chilled-out stroll down memory lane, she thinks back to her childhood, reminiscing about “city parks, wild berries, and old bridges”—and a whole bunch of other stuff that makes the town so great. She’s even down with the weather: “Our rain is the paint that makes the land lush and the folks unique.”
