Gig Information

Grammy Award–winner Cécile McLorin Salvant is the hottest voice in American jazz right now.

“You only get a singer like this once in a generation or two,” said jazz giant Wynton Marsalis, who’s such a fan of this Miami-born vocalist he hired her to front his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

Channelling the sass, the sorrow and the sweeping ease of jazz’s greatest vocalists – Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Sarah Vaughan – Salvant’s bell-clear soprano and unusually juicy bass is a new, fresh voice of its very own: rich, striking, endlessly nuanced, a straight-up heartbreaker.

With an entrancing stage presence and performance of pure emotion, she reinvigorates jazz standards – finding fresh thrills within vaudeville, the blues, gospel and folk music too. She’ll have you eating out of the palm of her hand.

Presented by the New Zealand Festival, 23 Feb-18 Mar 2018.
Partnered by Boulcott Suites.
