Lizz Wright

Eclectic is what "they" sometimes call singers like Meshell Ndegeocello who don't fall under standard music categories. So, it is only fitting that Ndegeocello wrote the title track, "Fellowship," for Lizz Wright's recent album, as Wright is a fellow eclectic, who blends her gospel upbringing (singing in the choir), Eric Clapton rock, Gladys Knight soul and Joan As Police Woman indie-rock influences into her own sound. Eclectic must be that music category of jazz called good, because Wright's music falls in that line.
<br><br><b>
Why go: </b>Wright will give you an evening of jazz, gospel, rock and folk all in one.
<br><br><b>
Reconsider: </b>You still think Kenny G is the be all and end all.
<br><br><b>
Details: </b>8 p.m. Thursday at SPACE, 1245 Chicago Ave., Evanston; $28-$40; 847-492-8860, evanstonspace.com
