“[Ghost Song] is her boldest act yet. Here, Ms. Salvant displays yet more sonic range and nuance—soaring through intervals, moving nimbly through tricky rhythms, and reveling in pithy turns of phrase. Her voice is singularly arresting, yet it is never a single sound.”—Wall Street Journal
Three-time Grammy winner, MacArthur Fellow, and beloved jazz vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant makes her return to Bing Concert Hall with her latest album Ghost Song, a rich exploration of the myriad ways people find themselves haunted through ghosts, nostalgia, and yearning. Ghost Song most recently landed on the New York Times’ list of the Best Jazz Albums of 2022 and has earned two Grammy nominations. This emotionally captivating manifestation of absence and grief is powered by Salvant’s vocal gifts, concise yet prismatic writing, and genre-obliterating inclinations.
