GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling is among the world's foremost jazz vocalists. He has won every DownBeat Critics Poll for the last 14 years and has been named 'Male Singer of the Year' by the Jazz Journalists Association eight times in that same span. Every one of Elling's ten albums has been nominated for a GRAMMY.

Elling's rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth. His repertoire includes original compositions and modern interpretations of standards, all of which are springboards for inspired improvisation, scatting, spoken word, and poetry.
