Watch & Listen
Hailed by the New York Times as “the standout male vocalist of our times,” Grammy-winning jazz singer Kurt Elling has an uncanny sense of commitment and authenticity in delivering passionate interpretations of material ranging from John Coltrane to U2, Cole Porter to King Crimson, Irving Berlin to the Beatles, Hoagy Carmichael to Rodgers & Hart, Sam Cooke to Duke Ellington. A brilliant vocalist, composer, lyricist and vocalese performer, Elling represents the créme de la créme of jazz singing today.
Part Sinatra, part Mark Murphy, part Jack Keruoac, Elling weaves a spell with his resonant baritone voice, four-octave range and suave delivery, whether he’s playing the sensual crooner, scatting firebrand or beatnik jivester. As London’s The Guardian wrote: “When it comes to expressiveness, technique and sheer beauty of voice, I can think of no male singer alive to equal Kurt Elling. As they used to say of Sinatra, he could sing the Manhattan phone book and have the audience on the edge of their seats. An Elling song can be a meditation, a demand, a lament, an expression of wonder, but never naive and rarely simple.”
