Lalah Hathaway isn't just a scion from a great musical dynasty, she's one of the best R&B singers out today. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, she minted New Wave hits in the 1990s (the video for "Baby Don't Cry" occasionally graces the VH1 Soul channel, and even with the ridiculous background dancers and geometric furniture, it's still terrific) and later collaborated with jazz musicians Marcus Miller and Joe Sample. Last year, Hathaway signed with Stax Records to release Self Portrait, a contemplative album filled with songs about childhood and past relationships. This weekend, Hathaway has her annual run at OaklandYoshi's (510 Embarcadero), where she'll perform with band members from Legally Blynd, plus local keyboardist Michael Aaberg. Friday, Apr. 10 & Saturday, Apr. 11 (8 & 10 p.m.), & Sunday, Apr. 12 (7 & 9 p.m.), $28.
