Ledisi’s constant desire and excitement to bring her audience into the fabric of each song is what makes her an engaging and refreshing performer. Even if that means walking through her audience to make sure the message was being translated exactly the way she wanted.
Ledisi emerged onto the stage with her signature electric red loc-hawk. Beginning her set with ‘Rise Up’ and ‘So Into You’ from her current album ‘Pieces Of Me’ then progressed onto fan favorites ‘Goin Though Changes’ and ‘Think of You’.
Ledisi’s effortless Jazz scats using her low register and soprano notes are clear heavily influenced by Ella Fitzgerald.
Her Jazz-Soul voice paired with a heavy base drums and base guitar drove songs from four of her six albums between reflective conversations about the ups and downs of her career. Almost giving up on music, to being nominated at next months Grammy Awards.
My only disappointment with Ledisi set was that she didn’t perform more material from her current album like the grown and sexy; ‘I Gotta Get To You’ ‘Stay Together’ and ‘I Miss You Now’ that would have fit the character of the audience. The night ended with an encore of ‘Shut Up’ that fit comfortably into the soul freeing Friday night.
