From JAZZCORNER: Cyrille Aimée



The Finale of Her Longstanding Band Captured Live in New York City, While Aimée Looks to New Adventures in Music and Life

As anyone who has followed her work over the last decade can attest, Cyrille Aimée thrives on living in the moment. Nowhere is this more evident than on stage. Throughout Cyrille Aimée Live (available now via Mack Avenue Records), she holds the audience in the palm of her hand: rapt during quiet moments, raucous as the spirited band swings into high gear, roaring with laughter at Aimée’s charming and quirky banter, or singing along with a Michael Jackson medley, the crowd is an essential part of the buoyant show.
Recorded at a typically lively and engaging performance at New York City’s (Le) Poisson Rouge in August 2017, the album finds the acclaimed vocalist bidding a fond adieu to her long-standing band: guitarists Adrien Moignard and Michael Valeanu, bassist Dylan Shamat, and drummer Dani Danor.

(Le) Poisson Rouge

But Aimée, restlessly creative and an inveterate improviser — in her life as in her music — is anxiously looking forward to new opportunities, new sounds, and even a new home. Born in France and long based in Brooklyn, the free-spirited singer recently relocated again, this time to New Orleans, an intriguing prospect not only for her all-embracing approach to music but for its cultural resonance with her French-Dominican heritage.
