Normally we spend a lot of time writing introductions, but really how could we top “If there had been a roof at the park, the singer would have torn it off the sucker, with her hot-and-steamy blend of R&B, funk, soul, jazz, and hip-hop”-- the Boston Globe’s assessment of Ledisi’s performance at the Newport Jazz festival? Oh wait, we can: the two-time Grammy nominee she’s local. Ledisi gives her picks for the Bay Area below. You can check her out tonight at the Warfield when she appears with Musiq Soulchild
