Cécile McLorin Salvant

Performance Santa Fe presents rising jazz star Cécile McLorin Salvant!

At just 28 years of age, Cécile McLorin Salvant is already lauded as one of the best jazz singers of our time. Catapulted into the international spotlight after winning the 2010 Thelonious Monk Vocal Jazz Competition, Salvant has gone on to win a Grammy for her 2016 album, as well as the praise of industry titans such as Wynton Marsalis, who said of Salvant, “You get a singer like this once in a generation or two.” The Miami-born French-Haitian singer is not only placed among the ranks of Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, and Nina Simone for her operatic range, but for her mature interpretations—”her feel for subtext makes her one of the smartest (and funniest) interpreters going” (The Los Angeles Times).
