WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Chicago native and Concord recording artist Kurt Elling's journey from graduate divinity student to top male jazz vocalist and seven time Grammy nominee is the stuff of jazz lore. The strange and sometimes hilarious sound effects, audaciously fast scat work and consistently ingenious vocalese passages that are Elling's stock-in-trade have have redefined the idiom's possibilities. The Chicago Tribune proclaims, "The art of jazz singing may never be the same. Elling has invented new rules for the singer's art, even as he set about breaking them." A natural heir to jazz pioneers Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure and Jon Hendricks, Elling now takes on a different challenge by exploring the legacy of crooner Johnny Hartman and his essential recording with the John Coltrane Quartet in a show entitled "Dedicated to You: Kurt Elling Sings Coltrane/Hartman." West coast tenor saxist Ernie Watts makes a rare NYC appearance to lend a hand.
