Cecile McLorin Salvant is a multi-disipline artist. With her incomparable jazz style, Salvant’s blissfully creative performances and selections are a testament to her innate artistry. Her latest recording Ghost Song, like her previous recording, is a crafted melange of genre juxtapositions. It begins with a stirring unaccompanied vocal performance of Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush. Original compositions are mixed with songs by Gregory Porter, Sting, Kurt Weill, and Bertolt Brecht. A song from the Wizard of Oz and the interpretation of a letter by Alfred Stieglitz to Georgia OKeefe round out the exquisite mix.
McLorin’s arrangements, be they haunting or jazzy, are grounded by her uniquely moving vocals. As an accomplished artist, Salvant sees the finished canvas with each brushstroke. Ghost Song, from Nonsuch Records, is an elegant jazz-based journey, full of emotion, nuance, and masterful creativity. Cecile McLorin Salvant.
