SUNDAY MORNING JAZZ: CECILE McLORIN SALVANT!!!


PEACE, LOVE, And HAPPY SUNDAY MORNING JAZZ HOLIDAY GREETINGS to ALL of My CRAZY COOL GROOVY Fam, Friends, Frats, Fans, Followers, and Frienemies of ALL colors, Shapes, Sizes, Flavors, Persuasions, and Denominations!!!

Chocolate-Covered JAZZ Vocalist/Composer CECILE McLORIN SALVANT was born in MIAMI, FL, of a FRENCH Mother and a HAITIAN Father.

So though she was born in the UNITED STATES, her native tongue is French; which is of the three languages in which she performs (English, French, Spanish).

CECILE McLORIN SALVANT started classical piano studies at 5, and began singing in the MIAMI CHORAL SOCIETY at 8. Early on, she developed an interest in classical voice, began studying with private instructors, and later with Edward Walker, vocal teacher at the UNIVERSITY Of MIAMI.
 
In 2007, she moved to Aix-En-Provence, FRANCE, to study Law as well as Classical/Baroque Voice at the DARIUS MILHAUD CONSERVATORY.
 
 In 2009, after a series of concerts in PARIS, she recorded her first album, CECILE, with J The JEAN-FRANCOIS BONNEL PARIS QUINTET.
 
In 2010,  she won the THELONIOUS MONK JAZZ VOCAL COMPETITON in WASHINGTON, D.C.

CECILE McLORIN SALVANT performs unique interpretations of unknown and scarcely recorded jazz and blues compositions. She focuses on a theatrical portrayal of the jazz standard and composes music and lyrics which she also sings in French, her native language as well as in Spanish.
 
Cécile has performed at numerous festivals such as Jazz à Vienne, Ascona, Whitley Bay, Montauban, Foix, with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in New York’s Lincoln Center and Chicago’s Symphony Center and with her own band at the Kennedy Center, the Spoleto Jazz Festival, Detroit Jazz Festival and other venues.
 
2013 saw her to release her US debut album, WOMANCHILD, which has been nominated for the 2013 GRAMMY AWARD for BEST JAZZ VOCAL ALBUM.
 
Through WOMANCHILD, she displays that she has the technical ability, lyrical sense, and undeniable charisma to sustain a career that could undoubtedly match those of her idols — who include BILLIE HOLIDAY, ELLA FITZGERALD, and SARAH VAUGHAN.

So kick back, relax, and enjoy the vocal stylings of  CECILE McLORIN SALVANT - the Cocoa-Coated WOMANCHILD
 
HAPPY CECILE McLORIN SALVANT SUNDAY MORNING JAZZ In The AFTRENOON!!!
 
PEACE, LOVE, JOY, And ABUNDANT BLESSINGS;
