Cyrille Aimee: A Sondheim Adventure

Cyrille Aimee

Birdland Jazz Club
All Ages
After a successful week long run back in February, Cyrille Aimee is Back at Birdland! She will be presenting songs from her Sondheim Project

Jazz vocalist Cyrille Aimée (pronounced: "Surreal Emmay") takes a deep dive into the Stephen Sondheim songbook for her scintillating new album, Move On: A Sondheim Adventure (Mack Avenue). What began as a celebration of a legendary Broadway songwriter became a work of cathartic autobiography as one song after another captured her deepest personal feelings. Cyrille’s culturally rich background — Dominican and French Gypsy — and conservatory training, form the rhythmic and expressive foundation of her art. At the young age of thirty-four, she has become one of the most distinctive voices in jazz, “beautiful, talented, precocious, funny, cultured, with the kind of instantly-recognizable voice that has no known precedent."
