When we talk big, it doesn’t get much bigger than Kurt Elling.

International jazz award winner, multiple Grammy nominee, a gleaming discography; the list goes on. Elling’s astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth spans as far as his four octave voice.

His music has been described as an art form, “the voice of jazz gives a new spiritual presence to the ancient, sweet and powerful bond between poetry and music,” says Robert Pinsky, former Poet Laureate of the United States on Elling’s craft.

Performing alongside huge acts and even for The Obama Administration, his soaring vocal flights and edgy lyrics create a sense of a musical mission among listeners.

Kurt Elling is playing with John McLean (Guitar), Gary Versace (Piano), Clark Sommers (Bass),
Ulysses Owens Jr (Drum).
