Event Description

Jazz singer Kurt Elling inspires superlatives: The New York Times called him “the standout male vocalist of our time,” while DownBeat critics have named him top male jazz vocalist for twelve straight years. He is also a Grammy winner, and all of his albums have been Grammy nominated. His rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technique and emotional depth, with a virtuoso command of rhythm, texture, phrasing, and dynamics. His repertoire includes original compositions and modern interpretations of standards, all of which are springboards for inspired improvisation and scatting. Elling is also a star practitioner of vocalese, the writing and performing of words over recorded instrumental jazz solos.
