Cécile McLorin Salvant is turning heads everywhere she goes. Dubbed by the New York Times as “the finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade,” Salvant is known for her unique interpretations of unknown and scarcely recorded jazz and blues compositions. Salvant’s 2013 Album Woman Child received a GRAMMY® Nomination for Best Jazz Album, which shouldn’t come as a surprise from this 5-time DownBeat Poll winner. In early September, following her twenty-sixth birthday, she released her third album, For One to Love, which is receiving rave reviews around the world.
