Robert Glasper and Esperanza Spalding on Late Night TV

Last night was a pretty big night for jazz and late night television (unless you count the fact that the Saturday Night Live Band has always been a jazz band). Both the Robert Glasper Experiment and Esperanza Spalding were musical guests for late night talk shows-- Glasper & Co. on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Spalding on The Late Show with David Letterman. When the realization dawned on jazz Twitter yesterday, it created a bit of a Sophie's choice in what to watch considering both shows air at the same time. Fortunately, the videos of last night's performances are right here.
