Winner of the Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition, Cyrille Aimée truly has jazz in her blood. Raised by a French father and Dominican mother in the northern French town of Samois-sur-Seine – the last home of Roma jazz giant Django Reinhardt – Aimée found inspiration in the music of Reinhardt and the freedom of the gypsy lifestyle, singing on street corners during travels across Europe.

Winning the Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition in 2007 helped finance her self-produced debut album, and finishing as a finalist in the 2012 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal Competition elevated Aimée’s visibility to a global level as a major new figure in jazz. A performer possessed of an infectious joy, lightness of touch and deep feeling for the lyric, Aimée released her breakout 2014 hit on Mack Avenue, It’s a Good Day, mixing Roma jazz inspirations, bossa nova, flamenco and the Great American Songbook. The album was an international smash, called “a bravura turn, presented with a smile” by The New York Times. For these performances, Aimée performs a cross-section of her wide ranging repertoire including music from her latest Daudel Records release I’ll Be Seeing You.
