Al­though Gre­gory Porter may be the most head­line-grab­bing vo­cal­ist on the bill (a cou­ple of Gram­mys will do that) and Lalah Hath­away’s al­ready crowded ré­sumé gets an­other bump of au courant jazz cred with a re­cent run of col­lab­o­ra­tions with Robert Glasper and Snarky Puppy, this vo­cal­ist should not be over­looked. Her 2016 al­bum on Blue Note, “The Heart Speaks in Whis­pers,” was an un­der­rated gem, girded by her nim­ble vo­cals and con­tri­bu­tions from Esper­anza Spald­ing and L.A. R&B fa­vorites King. Prob­a­bly best known for the 2010 golden hour hit “Put Your Records On,” Bai­ley Rae has gone through some changes since those days — and haven’t we all.
