"Salvant, regularly and rightly, is considered one of the greatest jazz singers of her generation, but that label sells her short." - Rolling Stone

The world first learned of the incredible vocal artistry of Cecile McLorin Salvant when she wont the prestigious 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition. In just under the span of a decade she has evolved from a darling of jazz critics and fans, to a multi-Grammy Award winner, to a prescient and fearless voice in music today.

Her newest release, The Window, an album of duets with pianist Sullivan Fortner, explores and extends the tradition of the piano-vocal due and its expressive possibilities. With just Fortner's deft accompaniment to support McLorin Salvant, the two are free to improvise and rhapsodize, to play freely with time, harmony, melody, and phrasing.

"An artist with so fresh a point of view that her singing amounts to a kind of re-writing." - The Nation

Lauded as one of the top jazz pianists of his generation, Sullivan Fortner is recognized for his virtuosic technique and captivating performances. The winner of three prestigious awards – a Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship, the 2015 Cole Porter Fellowship from the American Pianists Association, and the 2016 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists – Sullivan’s music embodies the essence of the blues and jazz as he connects music of all eras and genres through his improvisation.
