Gretchen Parlato at the Blue Whale

Vocalist Gretchen Parlato possesses a vision as rich as her voice on her 2012 album, "The Lost and Found," which found her adding her own lyrics to songs by Wayne Shorter and Ambrose Akinmusire alongside covers of Mary J. Blige's "All That I Can Say" (written by Lauryn Hill) and a surprisingly sultry reworking of that dentist-office fixture "Holding Back the Years" by Simply Red's Mick Hucknall. Here she performs in a duet with pianist Taylor Eigsti. The Blue Whale, 123 Astronaut E S Onizuka St., Suite 301. Sat., 9 p.m. $15.
