Announcing herself with 2013’s sumptuous WomanChild, Cécile McLorin Salvant takes her sound still further on her new record, For One to Love, released on the Mack Avenue label. The album is masterful, a more complete offering on every level, in which the songstress permits her voice to work sonic miracles. Besides being a jazz singer of the highest calibre, McLorin Salvant was born on August 28th 1989 in Miami, Florida, studied French Law, while dabbling in baroque and jazz vocals in Aix-en-Provence, before going on to win the Thelonious Monk contest in 2010 (at just 20 years of age, before a jury composed of Al Jarreau, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Patti Austin, Dianne Reeves, and Kurt Elling!). As if all this wasn’t enough, the young artist is also an impressive composer, evidenced by the five original songs within this 2015 vintage. For One to Love takes in a variety of covers, too, including an incendiary version of ‘Wives and Lovers’, an old Burt Bacharach composition, alongside Blanche Calloway’s ‘Growlin’ Dan’ (Calloway was, of course, the first woman to lead a band of men!), and ‘What’s The Matter Now’, a track initially popularized by Bessie Smith. Another highlight on the disc comes in the form of a stunning reinterpretation of ‘Mal de vivre’ by Barbara. In sum, For One to Love proves to be a beautiful room for the voice of the young Franco-American, Harlem-based singer to play out in. It is a great moment for vocal jazz; the treble quivers, the bass stirs the soul. The greatness is aided through the music served up by the four backing musicians: pianist Aaron Diehl, bassist Paul Sikivie, drummer Lawrence Leathers, and accordionist Vincent Peirani. A momentous record.
