Jazz singer Cécile McLorin Salvant brings her quarter to the Philharmonie. It is a chance to catch a rising star.
Critically acclaimed French-American jazz singer Cécile McLorin Salvant performed with her quartet at last year’s Wiltz Festival, and wowed the local audience with her vocal range and superbly clear diction, as well as her natural stage presence and charm.
“Can there be another singer who enunciates words with this level of communicative engagement?” wrote London Jazz News reviewer Sebastian Scotney.
McLorin Salvant has been acclaimed by critics ever since she won first prize in the Thelonius Monk international Jazz Competition in 2010. But it was a string of performances at Ronnie Scott’s in London, a concert that had Scotney claiming her as the “complete heir” to the tradition of what he called “real jazz singers” such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan.
She is joined on stage by brilliant pianist Aaron Diehl, bassist Paul Sikivie and drummer Rodney Green.
