Joan Belgrave was pretty much born to do this. The soulful jazz vocalist from Detroit began her music career at just 3 years old, soon receiving vocal training from University of Michigan professor Dr. Willis Patterson. Her career was taken to the next level when she started collaborating with her husband, the late jazz trumpeter Marcus Belgrave, who she made five records with. On Friday, she’ll be joined by pianist Zen Zadravec, bassist Ibrahim Jones, and drummer Brandon Williams for two sets at Ann Arbor’s new Blue LLama Jazz Club.
