Radio France describes vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant as "disarmingly musical." In her early twenties, she's already won the Thelonious Monk competition and gained the ear of Wynton Marsalis. On this week's Piano Jazz, Salvant discusses her journey to discover jazz, and host Weber accompanies her on "I Can't Dance" and "A Fine Romance."
