Cecile McLorin Salvant
Dates:Thursday, September 14, 2017
Title:Cecile McLorin Salvant
Description:Cécile McLorin Salvant, whose For One to Love earned the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album, is “the finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade,” writes a New York Times critic. Wynton Marsalis is convinced of her greatness. “She has poise, elegance, soul, humor, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace,” he says of the singer, who has been thrilling listeners across America and Europe since she won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition in 2010. McLorin Salvant—who is fascinated by the history of American music and the connections among jazz, vaudeville, blues, and folk—meticulously selects her repertoire. She’s known for unearthing rarely recorded gems that tell powerful stories. “I’ve never heard a singer of her generation who has such a command of styles ranging from Bessie Smith to Betty Carter,” says pianist and composer Aaron Diehl. “To have an artist with such a handle on jazz vocabulary while being extremely expressive and soulful, that’s very rare.” She will perform with her band—piano, bass, and drums—in concert at Schwab Auditorium.
Times:7:30PM - 9:00PM
