Grammy-award winner Cecile McLorin Salvant returns to the Staller Center Recital Hall after a stunning performance here with Wynton Marsalis in 2013.
This time Ms. McLorin will showcase her unique interpretations of rarely recorded jazz and blues compositions with Sullivan Fortner on piano, the 2015 Cole Porter Fellow in Jazz of the American Pianist Association.
The duo’s theatrical portrayal of jazz and Cecile’s full range and emotional interpretation brings a dream of a concert to Staller Center. Cécile's "WomanChild" was nominated for the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal. Her 2015 Mack Avenue Album "For One To Love" won the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album.
