Album "The Gumbo"

CECIL L. RECCHIA AND THE GUMBO

A UNIQUELY LOUISIANA-FLAVORED SENSORY JOURNEY 

Imagine you are sitting in a New Orleans bar, savoring a spicy gumbo, a traditional Louisiana dish. It is in that ambiance that bubbly singer Cecil L. Recchia conceived her critically-acclaimed album “The Gumbo”, released in September 2018. After her debut album, a tribute to pianist Ahmad Jamal, the talented composer is back at it again by immersing herself in NOLA music, with much elegance and the accompaniment of a swinging and swaying quartet.

Let yourself get carried away by the new gem of vocal jazz, who will lead you to the roots of the French Quarter’s rhythm, a twin neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés!

“Jazz being sung with magnificence by Cecil L. Recchia.” // André Manoukian (France Inter)

“Classy musicians and a bubbly yet suave singer, whose good taste doesn’t allow for anything over the top.” // Louis-Julien Nicolaou (Télérama)

“Elegant from start to finish” // Laurent Valero (Fip)
