OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA  •  Yoshi's Jazz Club and Japanese Restaurant  •  Ongoing
Award-winning singer-songwriter Bettye LaVette is a mystery of modern American music. Although considered R&B royalty with an incredibly expressive voice, Bettye LaVette's career stalled after her first hit in 1962. A contemporary of Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson and the Four Tops, LaVette is enjoying a career rebirth following the Grammy-nominated 2005 release of The Scene of the Crime and her critically-acclaimed, explosive live performances. LaVette is more than a soul singer, she sings the blues, rock, country and the work of contemporary singer-songwriters with equal power and emotion.

Her new album Thankful N' Thoughtful is a collection of songs by The Black Keys, Sly Stone, Bob Dylan, and others.
