She’s back! Today’s reigning jazz vocalist returns to Santa Fe after her smash debut in 2017. The irrefutable heiress to the “Big Three” — Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Ella Fitzgerald — Cécile McLorin Salvant has been making waves in the jazz world since she won the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition in 2010. Over the last decade, Salvant has skyrocketed from a favorite of jazz critics and dedicated fans to a multi-Grammy Award winner and one of the most important and fearless voices in music today. As Wynton Marsalis aptly put it, “you get a singer like this once in a generation or two.”
