Kurt Elling Quintet with special guest Marquis Hill

“Since the mid-1990s, no singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling. He has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz” (The Washington Post). Hailed as the standout male vocalist of our time by The New York Times, Grammy Award winner Kurt 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 music making.

Here he is, with his dazzling US group, and featuring the new sensation of jazz trumpet playing, Marquis Hill.
