Cécile McLorin Salvant’s Ogresse is an original song cycle on which she collaborated with arranger and conductor Darcy James Argue.
This latest project from the two time Grammy winner is a work both musical and narrative, a fairytale like musical journey about a female ogre who falls in love with a man and, in the end, devours him. Since the release of Cécile, her 2010 debut album, Salvant has been wowing critics and audiences, including in her three Mondavi Center performances over the past four years. Backed with a big band and ingenious arrangements by Argue, this parable that touches on race and gender with humor and insight is a landmark artistic statement for Salvant.
