“The standout male jazz vocalist of our time”
The New York Times
Two Grammy Awards, more than a dozen nominations, and a just announced 17th(!) time topping Downbeat’s Critics Poll attest to Kurt Elling’s place among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists of any era. He returns to Jazz in July for the first time in 12 years, bringing his singular blend of elegance, originality and swing to a program of standards with Bill Charlap and a group of stellar musicians, as they take on music by Leonard Bernstein, Harry Warren, Ben Webster and more, and songs including “September in the Rain,” “Lucky To Be Me,” “More Than You Know” and others. A sure to be incomparable evening of music from two masterful interpreters, ever in service of the song.
