Three-time GRAMMY Winner Cécile McLorin Salvant is the “finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade” (The New York Times). She returns with her quintet following her latest Best Jazz Vocal Album GRAMMY win for her live 2018 Mack Avenue release, The Window.

Possessing a deep, velvety voice, rhythmic poise, and a sublime feel for the blues, Salvant combines conservatory-honed technique with a beguiling gift for lyrical interpretation — a singular, inimitable talent that won her the 2010 Thelonious Monk International Vocals Competition and drew the attention of early collaborators Jacky Terrasson and Wynton Marsalis. Her 2013 American debut album, the GRAMMY-nominated WomanChild, was the first real opportunity for American audiences to hear why Salvant had become a European sensation, and since then, her profile has taken a meteoric course around the world. For these dates, she performs with a phenomenal new quintet including pianist Sullivan Fortner, who partnered with Salvant on the duo release The Window.

With a repertoire full of lesser-known jazz and blues gems and a sly gift for lyrical re-interpretation through her contemporary sensibility, Salvant brings theatrical intensity to every song she sings.

It seems safe to posit that Cécile McLorin Salvant is not only the most successful female jazz singer to emerge since the turn of the millennium but also the most dynamically skilled.
