Innovators, masters of their style, looking back in history that’s how we sometimes classify the masters. Cyrille Aimee takes jazz and makes it her own, inculcating the influence of legendary Django Reinhardt, the diversity of her cultural heritage, her travels from Paris to the Dominican to New York then across Europe. The net result, brilliant new jazz innovation, a sound that is so organic, vocal phrasing so tasty you can savor every note. This young jazz artist is the “Cyrille-Deal”
What a beautiful stage presence with her bouncy curls, Paris complexion and magnetic smile, all just a prelude to sumptuous vocals, scatty riffs and impeccable rhythmic timing. You are definitely witnessing one of the new Ladies of Jazz, fresh, vibrant and talent beyond measure. She won just about every vocal competition there was along the way to her now solo career and needless to say, the judges picked the right horse.
