Clubs & Concerts


When: Thu., Oct. 20, 8 p.m. 2011

These days, New Orleans native and soul singer Ledisi might be as integral to the city's musical heritage as any one of its brass bands, but you might not know that, as abundantly gifted, cultivated vocalists like Ledisi are often left wailing to the choir while talentless pop singers have all the fun. Start with her Grammy-nominated LP, Lost & Found, and if you're avoiding bandwagon-shame by jumping on her fifth and most recent release, Pieces of Me, a better idea would be to go small and hip with N.O. horn extraordinaire Trombone Shorty's recent jazz ballad, "Then There Was You." On that track, Ledisi's vocal spill should kick-start your curiosity. She's starting the promotional tour for Pieces of Me in Durham; we are much obliged. With Timothy Bloom. —Eric Tullis

Price: $30-$55
