Cécile McLorin Salvant Opens Jazz Season With Big Voice

Winner of the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album for her second release, “For One To Love,” Cécile has been dubbed the Ella Fitzgerald of her generation. A walk on winner of the 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition,  Cécile has taken the jazz scene by storm.

The voice of Chanel’s “Chance” ad campaign, Cécile is known for performing unique interpretations of unknown and scarcely recorded jazz and blues compositions. Focusing on a theatrical portrayal of the jazz standard she also sings in Spanish and her native language of French.


“You might say that songstress Cécile McLorin Salvant, the season opening performer for the St. Cecilia Music Center’s 2016-17 Jazz Series, wasted no time in adding Grammy winner to her already melodic name.”
