The voice of jazz singer Gretchen Parlato sits a bit lower than you might expect, with the soprano component of her register supplanted by a sultry, smoky ease. Indeed, with her rhythmic acrobatics and micromanaged dynamics, she's a constantly surprising jazz vocalist. What's most surprising still is that she's stayed the course, not yet attempting to cross over into R&B with her late-night tone. She respects the jazz songbook by testing it. —Grayson Currin
