Cecile Salvant McLorin Scores For gold.

Those of us who caught Cecile Salvant McLorin at the Whitley Bay Jazz Festival won't be surprised to learn the Cecile has picked up the prestigious 2010 Monk Int'l Jazz Vocals Competition award at Kennedy Center Washington D.C.
Well Done Cecile.

Beautiful performances both at the semi-finals and at the finals, I was there! And I must say that Bessie's Smith's "Take It Right Back" first performed by Cécile and the Jean-Francois Bonnel band at Whitley Bay was a hit! She received a standing ovation from the public and even from some judges!
