Here's a suitably unconventional visual accompaniment to the acclaimed American jazz bassist, cellist and singer Esperanza Spalding's One by Zaiba Jabbar, which lures the viewer with an eclectic and colourful style to match this remarkable performer. 

"It wasn't the usual approach or set-up on this one," Zaiba confirms. "The video consists of live footage that I shot during her live album recording/show in LA, which I did the creative direction for. I then had two hours to shoot additional set-ups with the amazing Esperanza to make this promo and ultimately make it feel cohesive."
