SOUL | Broca's Area

by

comment

Low-slung, polyrhythmic group Broca's Area is a sincere epitome of how the younger generation will come to appreciate the fathers of contemporary jazz and R&B. Singer Mary Corso's vocals are deeply soulful and intimate, which accentuates the hip-hop instrumentation and jazz cuts. J Dilla, Hiatus Kaiyote, and the Blue Note Records catalog are just a few of Broca's Area's favorite things — those styles have influenced the band into an abstract, artsy, music collective with cool grace.

Broca's Area will perform with The Dirty Grass Players on Friday, November 3, at Funk 'N Waffles Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 9:30 p.m. $10. rochester.funknwaffles.com; brocasareamusic.com.
