With a deep, velvety voice, rhythmic poise, a sublime feel for the blues, Cécile McLorin Salvant is jazz’s brightest rising star and the darling of Detroit’s Mack Avenue Records. Born in Miami to French and Haitian parents, and fluent in English, Spanish, and French, she confidently delivers jazz interpretations in a gorgeous, accessible program of standards and originals. While she is still only in her mid-20’s, her new album, WomanChild, was nominated for the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album. Touring festivals the world over, “Salvant has it all” (New York Times).
