R&B/jazz artist and “First Daughter of Soul” Lalah Hathaway will kick things off with a special concert on Oct. 2 at the Schuster Center. Hathaway burst onto the soul and jazz scene in 1990 with an auspicious self-titled debut album. The disc displayed a young artist who clearly had the pipes, but was also a developing song stylist, able to interpret both modern R&B and jazz. Her last name gives a lot away. She is the daughter of legendary soul performer Donny Hathaway and his talented wife Eulauhlah. However, while her name may have brought initial attention to some people, it was immediately clear that she is a true–and distinctive–vocal talent. With a style somewhat reminiscent of Patti Austin, but with a deeper, smokier edge, Lalah climbed to the top of the R&B charts with her debut hit “Heaven Knows.” Since those early days, she has had released several cds and partnered with countless talented musicians. Her latest solo effort will be released later in October. This special concert on Oct. 2 will start with a performance from Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, a unique and distinctly Dayton opening act not to be missed.
