A young jazz star with an old soul and the hottest voice in American jazz right now, Cécile McLorin Salvant grew up in Miami, the daughter of a French mother and Haitian father. After winning the Thelonius Monk Competition as a complete unknown in 2010, Wynton Marsalis became a champion, hiring her to front the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra shortly thereafter, and her latest album, Dreams and Daggers, won the 2018 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
