AllMusic Review by

Cecile is the debut album from 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition winner Cécile McLorin Salvant. Recorded before her Grammy-nominated 2013 major-label debut, WomanChild, 2010's Cecile is a swinging, urbane album that showcases Salvant backed by the Jean-François Bonnel Paris Quintet. With her impeccable phrasing, bell-tone voice, and knack for picking both time-tested and unusual standards, Salvant has been hailed as one of the best jazz vocalists of her generation, all of which is evident on Cecile.
