July 23, 2011 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Cecile McLorin Salvant – Saturday 23 July 17:00 — Dans Paleis — Price: £15.00
Winner of the most prestigious Jazz prize on the planet, The Thelonious Monk Competition, the vocalist is sensationally igniting new interest in the classic jazz vocal style. The New York Times glowed: “She stamped out the lines with authority and power and a bit of outrageousness, as if they were home truths, not history assignments.
She zeroed in on notes, sang at crawling tempos more than once, made her voice into a creaking door, a fog (a bit of Sarah Vaughan there), then a laser. She seemed fresh, but also as if she had decided long ago that she was an artist.”
First time in Edinburgh for the new jazz voice.
