Jaguar Wright in concert for WMNF w/ Mary Glenney, Women's Show07/22/06
Finally Free To Do My Work â€“ JAGUAR WRIGHT JAGUAR WRIGHT in concert for WMNF. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially in the case of fiery Philadelphia chanteuse Jaguar Wright. As notorious for her impassioned, spine-tingling vibrato as she is for her show-stealing performance at Jay-ZÂ´s 1999 MTV Unplugged concert with The Roots, Jaguar is the quintessential soul maven. Her sophomore debut, "Divorcing Neo to Marry Soul," is appropriately titled because it not only rids her of the cloak of the manufactured category "neo-soul," but represents her musical and personal emancipation. "I am truly divorcing everything from before to start fresh and new," says Jaguar, a married mother of two. "The title lets everyone know Iâ€™m divorcing the hype to marry the real. I donâ€™t sell anything else but me, or what I believe in or feel. I am finally free to do me, free to do my work." Jaguar Wright, State Theater, 687 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. 8 p.m. $15. www.jaguarwright.com.
