Cecile McLorin Salvant vocals – Sullivan Fortner piano

"The finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade"
The New York Times

“You get a singer like this once in a generation or two.”
Wynton Marsalis.

Four of Cecile McLorin’s albums have been Grammy-nominated and three have actually scooped the award. It is quite obvious that the international jazz world has found its new leading lady. Intelligence, humour, attitude: Cecile McLorin has it all. You can hear echoes in her unique timbre of great predecessors like Betty Carter or Abbey Lincoln. Her repertoire is a selection of jazz, vaudeville, blues and folk and she has a predilection for forgotten songs that tell stories. Together with pianist Sullivan Fortner, himself a rising star on the international jazz scene, she will transform the Henry Le Boeuf Hall into a sultry, intimate jazz club.
