'BEST JAZZ VOCAL' @ THE GRAMMYS
Over the years, jazz singer Cécile McLorin Salvant has developed a curiosity for the history of American music, and the connections between jazz, vaudeville, blues, and folk music.
She carefully chooses her repertoire, oftentimes unearthing rarely recorded, forgotten songs, with strong stories.
She enjoys popularity in Europe and in the United States, performing in clubs, concert halls, and festivals. In 2014, her second album, Woman Child (Mack Avenue Records) was nominated for a Grammy.
Her third album, For One To Love (for Mack Avenue Records), was recorded in 2015 with Aaron Diehl (piano), Paul Sikivie (bass), and Lawrence Leathers (drums).
In 2016, For One To Love won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album.
She sings clearly, with her full pitch range, from a pronounced low end to full and distinct high notes, used sparingly [...] Her voice clamps into each song, performing careful variations on pitch, stretching words but generally not scatting; her face conveys meaning, representing sorrow or serenity like a silent-movie actor.
