Cecile McLorin Salvant – August 24, 2013

Cecile McLorin Salvant  -  Marcus Garvey Park  -  August 24, 2013

This was day 2 of the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival, so it was a bit of a tossup how I would title it, but Cecile was the real draw for me, getting me down to Harlem plenty early and sitting in the hot sun for over an hour to get a primo seat.  Not that the other bands, and there were three of them, were slouches by any means.  I got all of the players for the Jaleel Shaw group, and the Kimberly Thompson combo as well.  But for Cecile I broke out the watercolors and let the rest of her band slide.  By Kenny Garrett’s set, I was played after two days of mad action sketching, so I just took what I could get.  Sketches here are in chronological order.
