Kurt Elling ‘1619 Broadway – The Brill Building Project’
With his rich baritone voice spanning four octaves, master vocalist and Grammy award winner Kurt Elling delivers soft and refined ballads. Known as a vocal acrobat, Elling makes unexpected leaps and takes dazzling turns with the greatest ease. He effortlessly combines rhythm, texture, phrasing and dynamics, approaching every word with pinpoint precision. He captures both the cool of Frank Sinatra and the virtuosity of an instrumentalist. It comes as no surprise then that Elling has been voted Best Male Vocalist for several consecutive years by the critics, and in 2012 for the eighth time by the readers of Downbeat magazine.
On his latest album ‘1619 Broadway – The Brill Building Project’ he celebrates a series of great American songwriters including Paul Simon, Burt Bacharach and Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller who worked at Manhattan’s pop factory The Brill Building on Broadway.
