Life Is Sweet (self-released)
Sweet indeed. Jazz songstress Lissy Walker has a distinctly sweet voice, with some impressive technical chops. Life Is Sweet is mellow and easy. It’s mostly jazz, but there are a few folk elements thrown in, too. Trained locally through the Berkeley High Jazz program, Walker is proof that starting kids on music early is always a good thing.
At Freight & Salvage (2020 Addison St., Berkeley) on March 10. 8 p.m., $18.50-$19.50
