Description
Born in Miami to French and Haitian parents, Cécile McLorin Salvant began singing jazz while living in Paris; at age 24 she won the Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition, exhibiting both a lush voice and the acumen to do something with it. "I wanted it to feel like there was a good mix of a folk, rural vibe with an urban, city vibe," she told NPR about her song choices on this CD, a 2014 Grammy nominee for Best Jazz Vocal Album. "That's one of the things I love the most about jazz, that those two atmospheres can come together so seamlessly." Selections range from the rarities "You Bring Out the Savage in Me" by Valaida Snow, "St. Louis Gal" by Bessie Smith, and "Nobody" by vaudeville comedian Bert Williams to her own awesome title tune and the standards "John Henry" and "I Didn't Know What Time It Was."

"The tour de force on Cecile McLorin Salvant's sublime new album—well, the first of a handful—is her performance of 'What a Little Moonlight Can Do.' Her rendition of the Billie Holiday staple is eight minutes of twists and turns in the melody, of vocal shadings that simmer before boiling over. It ends the only way that makes sense: with McLorin Salvant unleashing a string of ecstatic high notes."—Boston Globe (Top 10 of 2013)

"You can trace some of her effects back to Sarah Vaughn, Betty Carter and Abbey Lincoln, and maybe Paris-trained Madeleine Peyroux and Catherine Russell's early jazz period pieces. But McLorin Salvant uses those examples mostly to illuminate the possibilities. She has her own sense of drama…. You can hear how much time pianist Aaron Diehl's trio put into working with the singer to make every piece distinctive and brick-solid. On the oldest tune, the man-versus-machine ballad 'John Henry,' Diehl chokes the piano strings with his free hand for a percussive prepared-piano effect. He makes you hear those hammers."—NPR's Fresh Air
