Salvant, Cécile McLorin
Mack Avenue, 2013, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Cécile takes us in many directions: country blues, cabaret, jazz classics and even ragtime. She is high on the expressive quotient with her own style. Her band is formidable with bassist Rodney Whitaker, Aaron Diehl on piano, guitarist James Chirillo and Herlin Riley on drums. Salvant bends, stretches and elaborates on a dozen classics testing the limits but never breaking the mood, tone or intent. Accompaniment follows suit, delightfully so! WomanChild is earthy, heartfelt jazzy entertainment.
