"Beloved for her enthralling narrative flair, impeccable vocal mastery, and passion for traversing an extensive spectrum of musical genres, Cécile McLorin Salvant is one of the few true reigning divas of jazz," Brian Levine says of his guest on The Gould Standard in the second in a two-part interview.

"Beloved for her enthralling narrative flair, impeccable vocal mastery, and passion for traversing an extensive spectrum of musical genres, Cécile McLorin Salvant is one of the few true reigning divas of jazz," Brian Levine says of his guest on The Gould Standard podcast in the second in a two-part interview. "But her creativity, curiosity, and wayfaring imagination take her well beyond the boundaries of any one style or genre of expression." You can watch part two of their conversation, about her two Nonesuch albums, Mélusine and Ghost Song, and more on YouTube and hear it on Apple Podcasts below. And go back to watch or listen to part one of the interview, which debuted last month, here.

Mélusine has been nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album and for Best Arrangement, Instrumental and Vocals, for the album track "Fenestra," arranged by Godwin Louis. The album is a mix of originals and interpretations of songs dating as far back as the 12th century, mostly sung in French along with Occitan, English, and Haitian Kreyòl. They tell the folk tale of Mélusine, a woman who turns into a half-snake each Saturday after a childhood curse by her mother. You can get it and hear it here.
