Thursday night, Jessica Gabrielle returns to Sole to play her blend of soul/jazz/funk/pop and French classics. The first half of her life was spent in France and she brings that sensibility in when she isn't torching the place with soul music. A young singer in her 20s, she has a very well trained and beautiful and powerhouse voice. When I first heard her at Sole I was put back on my heels-knocked out. She packed the house and it was abuzz with young, vibrant talent. If this is the next generation, bring it on...jazz will be alive and well.
