The first time Esperanza Spalding played at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, she was a young jazz bassist and singer who was steadily building a following. Since then, she's played at the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Concert and scored an upset Grammy win for Best New Artist, beating out such high-profile contenders as Justin Bieber and Mumford & Sons. But when Spalding returns to Segerstrom this weekend, she won't return as a headlining pop star. Rather, she'll come back as S. That's the final letter of ACS, the jazz trio that consists of Spalding, pianist Geri Allen and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington.
