Cecile McLorin Salvant For One To Love on 180g 2LP + Download

Cécile McLorin Salvant, the wildly talented 25-year-old singer, songwriter, visual artist and illustrator, became a breakout star with 2013's WomanChild. Her follow-up, For One To Love, is a courageous statement of contrast: love and longing, delight and desire - to be released September 2015 on Mack Avenue Records.

Cécile composed five original songs for For One To Love. Each of these tunes explore the album's underlying themes and display Cécile's strong personality, sharp intellect, coy humor, unfettered romanticism, and penetrating honesty. The thematic elements continue to grow with a smoldering take on Burt Bacharach's bygone "Wives and Lovers" and "Growlin' Dan" by Blanche Calloway, the first woman to lead an all-male orchestra. "What's The Matter Now," originally popularized by Bessie Smith, is a juxtaposition of feel versus subject matter: a plea for fair treatment enclosed in a playful blues. "Le Mal De Vivre," written by French singer Barbara in 1966, is a stark ballad performed by Cé cile in French.

For One To Love is a riotous showcase for this riveting voice: quivering highs and soul-shaking lows, all delivered with grace and style. Salvant has reunited with decorated young pianist Aaron Diehl, joined by his trio of Paul Sikivie on bass and Lawrence Leathers on drums. Together this ensemble swings and swirls, nimbly hanging on Cécile's every cry, snarl and coo. A gifted illustrator, Cécile also accents the album's poignant music with original artwork.
