Her most recent project, Autumn in Augusta, is a tribute to her mother and the music her mother loved-everything from Trini Lopez to Nina Simone to Josh White to Mariam Makeba. Lucy Smith performs Thursday at 1:45 p.m. at the Chicago Cultural Center as part of this year’s Chicago Jazz Fest. It’s Free Admission.
