Editorial Reviews

2013 release from the Jazz vocalist. On WomanChild, McLorin Salvant gives music lovers the chance to hear why illustrious judges at the Monk Competition gave her top honors. McLorin Salvant is still a bit of a mystery, but she will hardly be a secret any longer.

I'm shocked not only at how Great this music is, but that i'm only the 2nd person to review this CD?!! This woman is in The Big Leagues, up there with Billie, Sarah, Ella, Abbie and only a few others! In fact, when i first heard her on the radio, singing What a Little Moonlight Can Do, i thought it was some recnetly discovered track by Betty Carter! CHECK OUT THIS VOICE/THIS MUSIC!!!

A beautiful modern take with a much deeper mature sweet honey'd feeling that transports you with past Divas like, Ella, Billie, and Sarah,... but yet always lingering in this current 'now' space and time. Simply put, "She's FEELS GOOOD Music!"

Extraordinary 2nd solo cd by a shooting star, Madame Cecile Mclorin Salvant. If you only buy a few jazz cd's this year please make this one of them and support a wonderful new jazz artist with the soul of the classic ones we all love and something fresh that we all look for. The ending of "What A Little Moonlight Can Do" is just mind boggling !

There is a hearsay among Japanese record collectors, album covers never fail to our expectations. The cover photo of Cecile Mclorin Salvant, lost in thought, emit firm resolution enshrined in her mind, has something special appealing to listeners.

A curtain is raised, when you put a needle on a turn table. First stage starts with “St Louis Gal.” Spot lights illuminates her sitting on a high chair accompanied by a guitarist James Chirillo. After a short dark change you realize your sitting in a cozy night club. Rodney Whitaker’s splendid walking bass solo is featured in “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was.” Aaron Diehl and Herlin Riley also support her superbly. Her performance is a combination of gut-level and sophistication. Her voice is mixed with the refined and the volatile, the feral and the feminine. You feel something nostalgic in her song. She remind you of big singers like Billie, Sarah, Ella, and Dinah in their prime times. She seems to digest every best parts of old singers and to synthesize them into her own, uniquely at once girlish and gutsy. Her effort of modernizing tour-de-force of pitch-perfect-theatricality is remarkable in her original song “Womanchild.” Herlin Riley’s drumming gets a good effect in “You Bring Out The Savage In Me.” When you hear Billie Holiday in her sound, her first stage ends.

The second stage is a show case. You can enjoy after-hours like session with trio members. Aaron Diehl’s thumb piano like sound in “John Henry” is smile-provoking. Cecile Mclorin Salvant performs like Dinah Washington in “Take It Right Back.” “Mean To Me,” interplay tune between Rodney Whitaker, becomes a favorite track. “Jitterbug Waltz” conveys all about lingering atmosphere when party is over. “What A Little Moonlight Can Do” goes into a swirling torrent of ecstasy. With poised “Deep Dark Blues,” a club close its door. This album surely validate jazz media’s hyperbolic exaltation.

Cecile McLorin Salvant has a voice. To call it "rich" is a huge understatement. She is a throwback to all of the superb voices that have come through the age, while maintaining her own individuality in song. She's got such a magnificent, wondrous, soulful voice it's hard to put to words. You feel everything she is, all the emotions that go into producing that sound, you experience right along with her. She has a way about her, a gilded batch of tentacles that reach through and into your soul. You will dig it.

Cecile is just one of those special people with some extra God giving talent. Her vocals are incredible and precise. She is definitely going places. The music is very good, both the songs in English and in French are spectacular. This is definitely a must have and it's the latest addition to my jazz collection. Highly recommended!!

For my taste, CMS uses too much vibrato. I am sorry to say that she occasionally reminds me of a... billy goat! This gets cloying in the way too much sugar makes an otherwise well-made dessert unappetizing. It seems she often brings in vibrato to hide an off-key pitch while holding sustained notes. Listen carefully to those passages where she isn't using vibrato, and you will hear that it is often slightly off-key. Fortunately, she has good timing and chest tone, and very seldom ventures into shrillness. Her song selection is interesting for me because it is NOT traditional. She is very young. With time, I hope she will develop into a mature and expressive artist. Meanwhile, CMS, please keep the music coming. Come sing for us at the Atlanta Jazz Festival. I am rooting for 'ya!
