Cécile McLorin Salvant
Rising jazz vocal star Cécile McLorin Salvant, just 24, sings with a grace and wit that evoke the greats of the idiom. It's easy to hear why she won the prestigious 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition. Tonight she's backed by Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks for the classic swing dance. Instructor Laura Jeffers teaches lindy hop, and DJs Chazz Young and Norma Miller spin a special set for lindy hop father Frankie Manning’s 100th birthday.
