Though still in her 20s, classically trained virtuoso Cécile McLorin Salvant is already tied to the pantheon of iconic jazz vocalists. With her fifth album, The Window, she continues spicing her maverick take on tradition with exquisitely nuanced alchemy, this time almost exclusively as a duo with New Orleans pianist Sullivan Fortner. Their extravagant skills yield highly original interpretations of an eclectic array of standards, blues, Broadway, littering the pieces with jaw-dropping moments while redefining stuff as diverse as Stevie Wonder’s “Visions” and West Side Story’s “Somewhere.” Wednesday 6.19 7 & 9 p.m. $25—$50. 1010 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis.
