Bassist Esperanza Spalding defines and defies genres in a single soulful breath. An esteemed member of a tragically rare breed—the youthful jazz musician—Spalding takes on standards and originals with equal aplomb. On “Little Fly,” her adaptation of a William Blake poem, her bell-like voice ponders mortality through compound eyes, and her cover of Wayne Shorter’s “Endangered Species” showcases her swinging sensibilities and her bass’s intrinsic funk. Hailed as a prodigy since first taking up the piano at age 15, Spalding has already enjoyed a storied career—taking only three years to not only graduate from Berklee College of Music but to join the faculty. Although she won a Grammy for Best New Artist in 2011, she had already released three studio albums by that time, and a fourth dropped earlier this year.

Spalding’s prodigious output documents a ceaselessly evolving musical talent, and her four releases range from the relatively traditional Latin jazz of 2008’s Esperanza to 2010’s string-quartet-assisted Chamber Music Society. Her latest album, Radio Music Society, offers a conscientiously poppy counterpoint to the orchestral release’s down-tempo melancholy. With assists from Q-Tip (A Tribe Called Quest) and Blue Note saxophone legend Joe Lovano, her newest work couches her freeform melodic style in an exactingly mastered, radio-friendly setting.

Murat Theatre at Old National Centre

Past the glimmering main lobby, past the Middle Eastern accents and hand-carved murals of the Egyptian Room, past the Victorian splendor of the Corinthian Hall, Old National Centre’s Murat Theatre continues the venue’s brand of elegance. Therein, row upon row of red-upholstered seats face a proscenium-style stage that entertains crowds with Broadway shows and musical acts. Overhead, the soft warmth of a chandelier ringed by a floral mural offsets the brilliance of the stage lighting and the performers’ flashlight-juggling routines.

Old National Centre

Old National Centre was originally built in 1909 as the Murat Shrine, which housed Indianapolis’s growing population of Freemasons. The building has since been restored and has become an eye-catching display of diverse architectural influences. Outside of the venue, spindly towers topped with light-blue domes rise above the street, beckoning passersby to enter the theater and enjoy a show. The classic, opulent Grand Lobby opens up to a wealth of concert venues, exhibition halls, and ballrooms that astound visitors with Middle Eastern and Victorian designs.
