Kurt Elling is one of the most distinctive male singers in jazz today. Combining agile vocal abilities with sensuous emotion, Elling has wooed jazz critics and audiences across the globe with his sumptuous take on classics from the Great American Songbook.
'The label "heir to Sinatra" is a heavy one for any singer, but Kurt Elling wears it with ease,' says the Telegraph. 'He can float into stratospheric falsetto one minute, and indulge in comically razor-sharp rhythmic scatting the next.'
Following a sell-out Barbican concert last year, Elling brings his band, featuring long-standing collaborator Laurence Hobgood, to perform from his new Concord CD.
