If we didn’t know from her previous recordings, For One To Love is an unequivocal declaration that Cécile McLorin Salvant is an artist of exceptional talent. Her approach evokes the spirit of the great jazz vocalists and enfolded within her own bright, bold, playful and free performances. Putting more of her creative imprint on this effort, Salvant wrote five of the excellent tunes on the production. In addition to brilliant vocals and compositions, the arrangements are outstanding. The endeavor is also aided mightily by the presence of phenomenal pianist Aaron Diehl on the project, who is joined by his trio of Paul Sikivie on bass and Lawrence Leathers on drums. Every element of the production is impeccable and Salvant is truly beyond stellar.
