Back by popular demand!
Cécile McLorin Salvant’s exceptional vocal power, soul, and virtuosity are breathtakingly showcased through her one-of-a-kind interpretations of jazz standards and rare blues compositions. Fresh off her 2016 GRAMMY win for Best Jazz Vocal Album, this hotly anticipated follow-up performance is in support of her latest release For One To Love—a more intimate and confessional album that reveals new dimensions of this young singer’s artistry.
Salvant was launched onto the international stage after winning the 2010 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition at just 21. Her pitch-perfect phrasing and beautiful delivery amazed the judges, and she’s been wowing audiences worldwide ever since. The New York Times extolled Salvant’s singing for possessing “a playful sense of humor, a rich and varied tonal palette, a supple sense of swing… and a deep connection to lyrics.”
One thing is for certain—this remarkable, imaginative talent is here to stay.
“She has it all. If anyone can extend the lineage of the Big Three - Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald - it is this virtuoso.”
