. The renowned orchestra and Marsalis (pictured), its famed artistic director, can be counted on to deliver a rich blend of swinging sounds of the season during this December concert, but the more anticipated gifts may come from Salvant. The young Miami-born singer who found popularity in Paris and won the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz vocal competition in 2010, just released the ambitious "WomanChild," a critically lauded album of jazz and blues standards by Fats Waller, Bessie Smith and others. Not to be missed.
