Lorraine Feather 

With the Shelly Berg Trio. 9 p.m. Friday, October 21, $20. Nighttown, 12387 Cedar Rd., Cleveland Hts., 216-795-0550

Plenty of jazz vocalists are influenced by Billie Holiday; celebrated singer-lyricist Lorraine Feather has a direct link: She's Holiday's goddaughter. Her fresh/retro jazz hearkens back to the Duke Ellington small-band sound, and her moody, rhythmic vocals aren't much like Holiday's squeak; her father, songwriter Leonard Feather (he penned B.B. King's "How Blue Can You Get?"), is a more tangible presence. Down Beat magazine called her "energetic, enchanting, and exceptional" -- and that's not the half of it. In addition to writing all-original pieces, she's contributed her own lyrics to classic instrumentals such as Fats Waller's "You're Outta Here." So get in here.
