Critics Picks: Laura Mvula at August Wilson Center

by

comment

[JAZZ/R&B] + THU., JUNE 15

If an artist is lucky enough to have been praised by Prince, it will inevitably follow her for the rest of her career. Laura Mvula, whom Prince once said he listened to before and after his shows, finds herself in that class. But while Prince’s recommendation is great, Mvula stands on her own with her inventive and complex sound — part jazz, part R&B, part soul, and part something else unfamiliar. Prince’s favorite song of Mvula’s was “Green Garden” (mine is “Show Me Love”), but it’s really worth choosing your own, which you can do tonight at the August Wilson Center. Hannah Lynn 8 p.m. 980 Liberty Ave., Downtown. $41.25. 412-456-6666 or www.culturaldistrict.org
