Cécile McLorin Salvant and
Aaron Diehl, piano

 

“Salvant, regularly and rightly, is considered one of the greatest jazz singers of her generation, but that label sells her short.” (Rolling Stone)

Though only 30 years old, Cécile McLorin Salvant has spent the last decade evolving from a darling of jazz critics and fans to a multi-Grammy Award winner and a prescient and fearless voice in music today. Fresh off of her tour with the Monterey Jazz Festival, she returns to UMS in a more intimate setting, with her longtime collaborator, pianist Aaron Diehl. These two sets in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre feature the two artists improvising and rhapsodizing, playing freely with time, harmony, melody, and phrasing in a program featuring the Great American Songbook, among other compositions growing from that tradition and history.

Each set will feature unique program selections, as determined by the artists.
