Georgia Anne Muldrow with Dudley Perkins 

When: Fri., June 8, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $14, $18

Armed with an unusually expressive voice and a knack for commanding weird chord changes, soul singer Georgia Anne Muldrow might be the most propitious addition to the Stones Throw record label in recent years. That's not just because she's one of the only women, or because she spawned from a jazz dynasty -- her father, the late guitarist Ronald Muldrow, played with saxophonist Eddie Harris, while her mother, Rickie Byars Beckwith, is a widely known composer of healing music. Muldrow evidently writes and produces her own music in addition to interpreting the vocal parts. Her style resembles that of the late, beloved beatmakerJ.Dilla -- all dense harmonies, jangling drum fills, and chord changes that could easily be transcribed for a jazz trio. Like Dilla, Muldrow uses all the accouterments of contemporary hip-hop. But jazz forms the blueprint on which she built her songs. She'll perform at The New Parish (579 18th St., Oakland) with her beau, fellow Stones Throw artist Dudley Perkins, plus DJs Romes and fflood, on Friday, June 8. 9 p.m., $14, $18.
