There are many singers who can wow us with vocal prowess, yet there’s something raw and real about hearing Tessa Souter sing. The Anglo-Trinidadian is a basically self-taught musician who’s not afraid to take big risks in her performances with surprising takes on often just as surprisingly un-standard repertoire, from jazz arrangements of “Eleanor Rigby,” Cream’s “White Room” and Nick Drake’s “River Man” to covers of Brazilian compositions by Milton Nascimento and Dori Caymmi, modern jazz tunes by Wayne Shorter and Kenny Barron, originals such as her own mesmerizing “Usha’s Wedding” and superb arrangements of classical stuff by Chopin, Beethoven, Debussy and others. Souter’s new Picture in Black and White explores in original tunes the tangled roots of her biracial heritage. It’s the sound of an artist doing things her own way.
