"Since the mid-1990s, no singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling. With his soaring vocal flights, his edgy lyrics and sense of being on a musical mission, he has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz." - The Washington Post.
Grammy award winning vocalist Kurt Elling brings his eclectic blend jazz, blues and humor to the Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall, 4544 N Lincoln Ave., on Friday, February 11. He'll be singing some of his favorite songs with some of his favorite musicians. $38 admission.
Kurt Elling is among the world's foremost jazz vocalists. His rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth. His command of rhythm, texture, phrasing, and dynamics is more like a virtuoso jazz instrumentalist than a vocalist.
