For One To Love (180g Vinyl)
Double 180 gram vinyl, includes three bonus tracks not on the CD version.
"I'm not playing anyone else here but myself," McLorin Salvant explains. "I can look at many of these songs, and see that this is an event that really happened, or a feeling I've lived through myself. That's what makes it so difficult to share. It's almost like a diary entry."
Cécile is increasingly making her strongest musical statements via her own compositions, which stand out as the centerpiece on this project. Five of the tracks on 'For One to Love' are her songs, and here she reminds us of those other great jazz singers, from Billie Holiday to Abbey Lincoln, who found that the most powerful expressions of moods and feelings often came via their own compositions.
This may be the defining jazz statement on romance in the new millennium, a heartfelt album that both embodies the full range of the American popular song idiom, but distills it into a distinctly personal expression of a modern-day poet-troubadour.
