CD of the Month: Cecile McLorin Salvant leaves us breathless with "Dreams"

“For an artist who showed on her first two albums a wonderful combination of vocal prowess, smart song selection and personality, Dreams and Daggers is a near-perfect third piece to the artistic puzzle.” That is how our Howard Dukes describes the fantastic new album by Grammy Award-winning vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant.

McLorin Salvant first made waves as the 2010 Thelonious Monk Competition winner, and since then has taken the music world by storm with her remarkable voice and striking ability to inhabit the emotional space of every song and turn it into a compelling statement.
