The band is very good in support.

To say the least in Ms. Salvant's vocals I do hear Sarah, Ella, Billie, Bessie, Dee Dee, Diane and Carmen.
Texas Soulman
Cecile has great vocal control and a real passion in her voice.

The quality, tone and maturity of this young 23 y/o singer who, according to a NY Times article, has only sang jazz for the last few years takes my breath away; awakens my soul to joy!

When classical and jazz musicians are learning they study, listen to and sometimes imitate the masters of their instrument and genre. To say the least in Ms. Salvant's vocals I do hear Sarah, Ella, Billie, Bessie, Dee Dee, Diane and Carmen. However above it all I hear Ms. Salvant's own voice finding it's place among these legendary masters. It will be a wonder to watch her music career progress.

Surfing the web and Amazon I stumbled upon this CD. I cannot believe it has been out for 2 years and I did not know about it. If you are into jazz or a student of classical vocals you will enjoy Ms. Salvant. I look forward to her next record and will travel to witness this amazing artist. She's a rare talent indeed who one day the whole world may know simply as "Cecile"!

I heard her interview on public radio and felt compelled to listen to more of her work. Cecile Mclorin Salvant transports the listener to an era when female singers truly had that "Je ne sais quoi" that forced one to take notice of them. She is all the greats rolled into one and then transformed into someone new and fresh.

The early reports are true - Cecile Mclorin Salvant has the got the combination of voice, presence, knowing, and a path to the Jazz past, present, and future. This collection of classic jazz tunes may not be ground breaking, but establishes the cool authority she has with each tune. The band is very good in support. Looking forward to the new album.

I heard Cecile McLorin Salvant in NYC at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and was so impressed by her that I sought out her discography. She is a natural with the standards, reminding me of a modern day Ella Fitzgerald. The real thing! Check her out.

what a pleasant surprise! This was recommended to me by a friend. I really enjoyed it. Ms.Salvant has a terrific command of pace and phrasing, and her voice is reminiscent of the greatest interpreters of the American Songbook. A real pleasure to hear. If you like the overall sound and mood of the first couple of Madeleine Peyroux albums, you're likely to enjoy this too. That being said: Ms. Salvant's interpretations are wholly original and I think she's going to leave a lasting impression on the industry. The quintet that backs her is charming, too. This whole group seems like the kind of people I would love to know and have over to visit for a week or two.

I heard Cecile at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and was thrilled to find I could download her CD from Amazon. This woman has a fabulous voice and the Quintet is great as well. I'm a fan!!

A bit of Toni Harper, a bit of Dinah Washington, mostly a mix of Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan but really, it's all her. She's going places. Great technique and beautiful timbre.
