The scene turns to black and white as you’re transported to a quiet bar with a lit cigar and the soundtrack of jazz singer Cecile McLorin Salvant.

Slow dance to the rich melodies of Dreams and Daggers via Mack Avenue Records as the excitement of love thematically lines the new release created from Salvant.
Lucinda Williams’ gritty vocals radiate a state of absolute satisfaction.
