Listen to the final episode of Jazz Night In America's three-part series on the Newport Jazz Festival. Philly native Christian McBride, who hosts the program and is also the artistic director of the festival, is part of some of the amazing vintage Newport performances featured this time around.

August 10, 2020. When legendary saxophonist Jimmy Heath passed away on January 19th, Philadelphia lost one of our upper-echelon of jazz—a high priest, if you will. Less than two months later, we lost McCoy Tyner and Danny Ray Thompson.

For One To Love, vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant's recent album, is a popular new release at WRTI, and has been nominated for a 2015 GRAMMY Award.

This is not the first GRAMMY nomination for the Miami-born, classically trained chanteuse; her 2014 breakout release, WomanChild, was also nominated for Best Jazz Vocal Album.

Singer Cécile McLorin Salvant was born in Miami to French and Haitian parents, and started singing jazz while living in Paris. Back in the U.S., she won the Thelonious Monk vocal competition in 2010. The 23-year-old's first album, WomanChild, is now out — and few jazz debuts by singers or instrumentalists make this big a splash.
