Jessie Ware, the Invisible

JAY HORTON
9 pm., Saturday November 16 | $17.
Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[SOUL MODERNE] While her contemporaries climb all over one another to prove the limits of their vocal prowess, 29-year-old U.K. chanteuse Jessie Ware has won an increasingly ardent fan base on both sides of the pond for her commitment to that rarest of all gimmicks within the nu-soul marketplace: restraint. A diligent student of Sade’s smooth operations, Ware’s supple, sultry stylings first won notice on the self-titled debut of post-dubstep tastemaker SBTRKT before the former journalist released her own album last summer. Devotion, atmospheric and alluring with hints of a welcome playfulness, proved Ware more than capable of belting to the rafters if needed. But, in a pop arena stocked with false Idols treating each note like the finals, such moments appear all the more powerful when surrounded by a measured grace.
