    It’ll clearly be her fourth consecutive record to be nominated for a Grammy for best jazz vocal album… and maybe her third in a row to win. If there were such a thing as a Grammy for best jazz piano album, The Window should rightfully be up for that, too, because keyboardist Sullivan Fortner is an equal--and equally spectacular--partner through all 17 tracks, regardless of whether he gets cover billing.

    The Window remains an intensely intimate listen, as if Salvant and Fortner are playing just for you.

    In refusing to pander, either to easy nostalgia or to current trends, she touches on something timeless.

    Salvant has found a fine match in Fortner, a New Orleans native who has played with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, John Scofield, and Paul Simon. He doesn’t accompany her so much as join in the conversation she’s having with these songs, occasionally even arguing with her about them.

    The Window is the recording of this singer most likely to haunt you rather than just blow you away.
