About Cecile McLorin Salvant
Otherworldly jazz sensation Cécile McLorin Salvant brings her towering command of jazz standards, as
well as new songs from her latest album, Dreams and Daggers, to New Zealand for the very first time.
Set to dazzle us with her miraculous voice, Cécile McLorin Salvant is, at 28 years old, one of the shining lights of the
international jazz scene with The New York Times proclaiming her “the finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade.”
Often compared to the greats, but with a range, sensibility and youthful charisma all of her own, Salvant specialises in unique
interpretations of neglected jazz and blues compositions, with an uncanny ability to make new songs sound like classics. Bear witness to this jazz legend in the making, performing alongside the virtuoso Aaron Diehl Trio at the Great Hall in glorious cabaret mode.
