Cécile McLorin Salvant – Born in Miami to a French mother and a Haitian father, this phenomenal young vocalist’s unique interpretation of jazz classics, blues standards, and beautiful little known works, have won her fans around the world. Winner of the top prize in the 2010 Thelonious Monk International Vocal Jazz Competition, McLorin Salvant has “perfect pitch and enunciation, a playful sense of humor, a rich and varied tonal palette, a supple sense of swing, exquisite taste in songs and phrasing, and a deep connection to lyrics. If anyone can extend the lineage of the Big Three—Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald—it is this 23-year-old virtuoso,” The New York Times.
Generously funded by The Koret Foundation, the Koret Jazz Project is a multi-year initiative to support, expand, and celebrate the role of jazz in the artistic and education programming of Stanford Live.
