Cécile McLorin Salvant
Since winning the Thelonious Monk competition in 2010, vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant has been blazing trails in jazz and art music, earning multiple Grammys, receiving a MacArthur Fellowship, and sharing five critically acclaimed releases with music lovers across the globe.
Nothing quite prepares listeners for the visceral intensity and virtuosity of her vocal performances. Marking Cécile’s first headlining performance at the TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival, she returns to present her newest album, Ghost Song. It’s rich with texture, unexpected instrumentation, and bears all the signatures of a McLorin Salvant project — thoroughly considered, carefully rendered, and absolute in its cohesion—while also being marked by the assured confidence of a once-in-a-generation artist stepping fully into her potential.
