Critics call her voice “scratchy” and “cracked,” but still you hear no irony or mockery in their intonations. More the reverse: love, respect. She may have won a Grammy Award back in 2001 in the “Best Pop Artist” category, but Macy Gray considers herself a jazz singer. And not without good reason. “Stripped,” her ninth studio album, is just one more demonstration of the fact, featuring Ari Hoenig on drums, Daryl Johns on bass and Wallace Roney on trumpet. Barcelona’s music fans will have a chance to judge for themselves when the curly-headed Macy brings songs from the album to town.
