Product description

Product Description

Vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant blends the sounds and styles of modern jazz with a complete command of the classic blues and early American vocal tradition. She draws on little-known songs spanning centuries of American music that aren't recognized as standards, but "should be, because they are so beautifully crafted."

On the album, Cecile's repertoire ranges from the 19th century ballad "John Henry," refreshed in a spirited up-to-date arrangement, to her own 21st century waltz "Le Front Caché Sur Tes Genoux". She is joined by a world-class band that shares her concern for creating jazz of today by drawing on vibrant traditions of the past including pianist Aaron Diehl, bassist Rodney Whitaker, guitarist James Chirillo and master drummer Herlin Riley.

Born in Miami to a French mother and Haitian father, McLorin Salvant's first language was French. She bypassed all the US conservatories and jazz schools, heading instead to France to study where, before returning to the US, she performed and recorded with reed player and teacher Jean-François Bonnel's quintet. By the time she returned to the US she was able to draw on this unusual set of formative experiences to shape a personal style of jazz singing that won her first place in the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition in 2010.

Personnel: Cécile McLorin Salvant (vocals), Aaron Diehl (piano), Rodney Whitaker (double bass), James Chirillo (guitar, banjo), Herlin Riley (drums)

Review

'One of the most hotly anticipated releases of the year...WomanChild is a completely self-assured and astonishingly mature statement...excellent band.' -- Jazzwise, (Peter Quinn) * * * *


'Salvant, is a 23-year-old girl wonder of the jazz world; a singer possessed of a stunning voice and a knack for making the most unexpected, potentially archaic, material sound fresh, relevant and emotionally current. That's exactly what she does on this, her debut album. Lyrical guitarist James Chirillo proves a wonderful match.' -- Scotland On Sunday, (Alison Kerr)


'A star in the making...there's an echo of Sarah Vaughan in that velvet lower register...her Haitian ancestry shines through on her setting of an Ida Faubert poem.' -- The Sunday Times, (Clive Davis)


'The Miami chanteuse has not just the depth and gravitas of an artist twice her age, but the intelligence and worldliness...her gorgeously rich contralto is controlled with utmost rigour and attention to detail...the highlights are plentiful.'

--Echoes, (Kevin Le Gendre)

An amazing album by a woman with an amazing voice. Sonically excellent vinyl record. I'd try to listen before you buy though as it's not for everybody.

I bought this album by chance after looking for something new to listen to, and how lucky I was to randomly choose this cd.
Never heard of her before but I thought well, its only the cost of an album. From the 1st track 'St Louis Gal' to the last 'Deep Dark Blue' it caught my ear and I just had to sit up and take notice. It truely is that good. A voice, a sound that Ive never heard before and I cant stop playing it. If I can compare its standing to another album : I think Woman Child is as big and as equally as important as when Amy Whinehouse burst upon my senses with Back to Black all those years ago.
If you dont like my review, never mind, just take a chance - be daring and buy this cd. You wont be disappointed !

I have been a life long fan of Billie Holiday and thought nothing would ever touch her, until now. This young lady is good and as her voice ages is going to become better and better. Cannot stop listening to this album

This is a beautiful jazz album. Well played and crafted numbers throughout. Her voice is amazing, great range from a deep chest voice to a jazz soprano head voice especially well demonstrated on the title track. Everyone that I've played this for has been impressed. It's easy listening jazz in some regards but complex enough to reward careful, serious listening too. I look forward to future developments of this great musician and her combo.

The sound quality made me tingle, ok I'm listening to it on 3 sets of speakers, 2 sets of Bose and 1 pair of BW, but I listen to everything through those.
The selection of material and the performance are faultless, the arrangements compliment and enhance the clarity, emotion, beauty, depth, power and SOUL in Cecile McLorin Salvant's voice.

For someone of my ignorance, these mostly old songs were new to me. Even if I'd known the songs, I know I'd have found these versions fresh. It's that voice, crisp, precisely phrased. Cleo Laine's range and jazz quality meets Frank Sinatra's phrasing, possibly? Not at all bad, in other words
