I Know You Know – Esperanza Spalding, Transcription by Andreas Farmakalidis

Meet Andreas Farmakalidis –

I know you know is the second track on Esperanza Spalding’s self- titled project. In general this album combines elements of Latin flavored jazz compositions, startling mixture of alluring acoustic bass as well as various jazz sounds and mechanisms, which only are a proof of her talent. On this specific track, the bass establishes a push-and-pause funk syncopation, while her vocal is a spray of eighth and 16th notes. It carries a Neo-Soul undertone, with a touch of Caribbean hooks. Her lyrics about youthful flirtation may be generic and repetitive, but their abundance of “b” and “no” sounds is perfect for her dizzying swoops and soars through the melody.
