Lizz Wright is one of the better up and coming jazz vocalists.  I saw her perform a number of years ago when she was getting started and she really has really improved since then.  Lizz composes many of the songs she performs.  Originally from Georgia, now based in NYC she is a great peformer with a very emotionally expressive voice.
