Improvisation is not just a technique for vocalist Cyrille Aimée, it is a way of life, her infinite artistic style. She has ventured from singing on street corners in Europe to dazzling audiences at some of the world’s most prestigious jazz festivals; from sneaking out to sing in gypsy encampments in her native France to acting on Broadway and winning over the notoriously tough audiences at New York’s Apollo Theater.
At the famed Montreux Jazz Festival in 2007, Aimée entered and won the vocal competition, recording her debut album with the prize money. It was the first of many such accolades to come, including winning the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and becoming a finalist in the Thelonious Monk Jazz Vocal Competition.
Next, Aimée met Stephen Sondheim after performing his material in a tribute concert at New York’s City Center. He told her she made him cry — quite a feat, given that she was fairly new to his music at the time. Her latest album "Move On: A Sondheim Adventure" on Mack Avenue Records is considered the acclaimed French/Dominican vocalist’s best album yet. But now, based in New Orleans and spending summers touring globally, Aimée has several new working projects, a local band, and forthcoming new releases.
Tonight, we welcome Cyrille back to the stage for the first time since Jazz Fest earlier this spring, and for the first time ever with the Victor Campbell Moíses Trio, featuring: Cyrille Aimée - vocals Victor Campbell - piano Martin Masakowski - bass Jafet Pérez - drums
