As the daughter of a Georgia minister, Lizz Wright grew up singing gospel music. She weaves that call-and-response style into her latest album, "Freedom and Surrender." The album touches on
music's healing role in Wright's journey through divorce and a near-fatal car accident. The soul and jazz singer, whose smoky voice has been likened to that of Norah Jones and Tracy Chapman, performs this weekend at San Jose Jazz Summer Fest.
