    Absolutely.

    I just found some Ytube clips of her playing live - with tracks from the second album.

    She put some funk elements into an indie/alternative band and made it work incredibly well. None of her replacements (as good as they are) did it quite so well.

    These days, it's all about Esperanza Spalding. The coolest person on the planet.

    I was beginning to wonder if anyone would mention Nik West. I'll add Yolanda Charles to this list.
     
  10. Meshell Ndegeocello for sure - love her voice & song writing skills as well.

    Angeline Sarris of zapperela. She can play any technique with perfection. New school, old school, finger playing, thumb thumping, pop and slap and Plectrum as well. She's just awesome
