Cecile McLorin Salvant

The Grammy-nominated 24-year-old breakout singer opens for the multi-generational Spring Quartet all-star group after a banner year following the Mack Avenue release of WomanChild, a bracing debut that blends the plaintive blues of Bessie Smith with the brio of Abbey Lincoln and Salvant's own Haitian flair. Wynton Marsalis has embraced the 2010 Monk Competition winner as a leading jazz vocalist, citing her respect for tradition tempered by a brash timbre and range. Salvant plumbs the depths of the jazz canon, exploring the French chanson and performing lesser-known standards, including Ella Fitzgerald's "There's a Lull in My Life" and Fats Waller's "Jitterbug Waltz."
