Jazz, Lounge, & Cabaret

Anna Maria Fletchero

When: Mon., July 21, 8 & 10 p.m. 2008

Anna Maria Fletchero's rhythm-and-bluesy treatment of the old standard "Misty" -- bringing each phrase in a little behind the beat, making the "l" swell out in "loooove," slurring the lines and adding an occasional "oooh" for sake of ornamentation -- makes her seem more interesting than most straight-ahead jazz vocalists. She'll perform on Monday, July 21, at Yoshi's (510 the Embarcadero, Oakland) with the great Cedar Walton -- who killed it when he played there in February. 8 p.m. & 10 p.m., $16. Yoshis.com
