    Cécile McLorin Savant:October 12th - 18th

    No vocalist in recent memory has won as many awards in such a short time as Cécile McLorin Savant, a 26-year-old who studied classical and baroque singing before switching to jazz. Her new CD, “For One To Love”, is sure to add to the tally. We air selections from the album each night this week.
