Cécile McLorin Salvant

The Window

Also Available on 2-LP 180gm in deluxe gatefold package

The world first learned of the incredible vocal artistry of Cécile McLorin Salvant when she won the prestigious 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition. In just under the span of a decade she has evolved from a darling of jazz critics and fans, to a multi-GRAMMY® Award winner, to a prescient and fearless voice in music today. Her newest release, The Window, an album of duets with the pianist Sullivan Fortner, explores and extends the tradition of the piano-vocal duo and its expressive possibilities. With just Fortner’s deft accompaniment to support McLorin Salvant, the two are free to improvise and rhapsodize, to play freely with time, harmony, melody and phrasing. “The Window” was produced by Cécile McLorin Salvant, Al Pryor and Sullivan Fortner.

"You get a singer like this once in a generation or two." - Wynton Marsalis

‘She connects with jazz’s past and prehistory while being entirely about risk and play in the present, making her voice go precise or foggy, deviating from pitch or hyper-elongating a syllable. It’s fantastic to see a young musician with this much intelligent control over her material and her audience.’ – NY Times

‘…a modernizing tour-de-force of pitch-perfect theatricality.’ – DownBeat
