Plans call for Sunday’s Jazz Depot show to be split neatly down the middle, with pianist-vocalist Joe Wilkinson and singer Louiza Cornelius featured in the first half, and vocalist Darell Christopher and his band in the second. That’s according to the veteran performer Wilkinson, who’s also producing the first segment of this two-parter. And while he’s still considering whether or not to sing a song or two himself – he’s leaning toward a performance of “Lush Life” — he’s happy to be playing for Cornelius, who’s getting her splashiest Depot showcase to date after impressing at the Tuesday night jam sessions and appearing in the Wilkinson-produced Memorial Day show. After her performance in the latter, she earned the approval of a critic very close to Wilkinson’s heart.
