Description

The critically acclaimed album 'WomanChild' by vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, on double 180 gram vinyl.

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.

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